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.

       Our guests:

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

    Watch the second part.
