It is the precious engine of the EU’s competitiveness on the global arena and the building block of consumer trust in products. Which is the way forward for the EU to maintain its competitiveness? Which are the challenges that the EU industry faces due to the lack of EU harmonisation? How valuable is the Single Market for consumers and how can the EU guarantee it remains a key asset of the Union?
