Joint press conference by José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC, and Michel Barnier, Member of the EC, on the communication "Towards a more competitive and efficient defence and security sector"

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Michel Barnier, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services, gave a joint press conference on the communication "Towards a more competitive and efficient defence and security sector".
A more influential Europe needs a strong and active common foreign and security policy, which in turn demands a more competitive and efficient defence and security sector. The successive waves of cuts in defence budgets and the persisting fragmentation of defence markets in Europe threatened Europe’s capacity to sustain effective defence capabilities and a competitive defence industry. This also jeopardised Europe’s capacity to meet the new security challenges in an autonomous and effective way.
This was why the EC presented a Communication which contained an Action Plan to enhance the efficiency and competitiveness of Europe’s defence and security sector. The Communication foreseed measures to strengthen the internal market for defence, to promote a more competitive defence industry and to foster synergies between civil and military research. Besides these, the Communication also explored options in other areas such as energy, space and dual-use capabilities.
The Commission invited Heads of State and Government to discuss this Communication at the European Council in December 2013, together with the report prepared by Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the EC.
