Ceced Europe: EU Industry Day


Today is EU Industry Day and Ceced Europe could not miss the occasion to underline once again the important role of home appliances sector in the European context. But the development of the industry needs the unlocking of the Digital Single Market opportunities. This is why Paolo Falcioni, Ceced Director-General urges policy makers to focus on improving the economic environment for business operators, the drivers of growth and wealth creation. Focus is needed on supporting Europe’s growing Digital Single Market, while safeguarding the industry’s ability to innovate. «Industry 4.0 – Falcioni explained – is an opportunity that can be grasped if policy makers are providing the necessary conditions. To foster the positive role the Home Appliance sector has for Europeans, we need a fully functional Single Market and a coherent body of legislation to unlock the potential of its digital version. In short, we need a Single Market 2.0.»
