With the EU facing a recession of historic proportions due to the coronavirus pandemic, the European Commission has had to rethink its priorities and focus on its economic recovery plan. What consequences does this have on the industrial strategy of the EU and its promises to go green and digital? The theme of bringing back production to Europe and increasing strategic sovereignty  has intensified both in the areas of industrial policy and European trade policy. What does this mean for your organization and industry?
