Extracts from the press conference by Antonio Tajani on an industrial policy for the security industry
On 30 July 2012, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, gave a press conference on an industrial policy for the security industry.
Providing security is a central concern of any society. Recent natural disasters and terrorist attacks have highlighted the need to be better prepared for crisis situations. The European Commission has therefore proposed an action programme to boost Europe's security industry.
The programme should empower this industry - one of the sectors with the highest potential for growth and employment in the EU - to stay in Europe and to continue producing high quality security products. PHOTOSHOTLISTLINKLINKLINK
