TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2013-10-10

Reviving Europe’s industry: what role for the state?

Last month, French President François Hollande unveiled a 10-year industrial policy in a bid to try and reverse a worrying trend: France has lost 750,000 manufacturing jobs in the last decade. But are state-sponsored schemes the best solution to try to save Europe’s industry? How can the EU help shape industrial policy for the future?

       Our guests:

  • Charles TANNOCK, British MEP, European Conservatives and Reformists Group;
  • Reinhard BÜTIKOFER, German MEP, Group of the Greens.

    Watch the second part.
