'A Vision for the Future of European Manufacturing' - speech of Tomas Hedenborg, 10 March 2017

The Estonian Presidency will run from July through December 2017 – and with priorities including ‘an open and innovative European economy’ and ‘a digital Europe and the free flow of data’, it will be a prime opportunity to address some of the most pressing challenges facing engineering and manufacturing firms.

Orgalime President Tomas Hedenborg travelled to Estonia in March to address a high-level conference attended by Mrs Urve Palo, the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Information Technology, where he presented Orgalime’s vision for the future of European manufacturing. He explained how by pursuing a joined-up approach to industrial policy, the incoming Estonian Presidency could further promote the development of a framework favourable to innovation and growth – at a time when our industry continues to grow both in terms of employment and output, which have now reached close to 11 million and 1900 billion euro respectively.
