Debate with Members of the European Roundtable of Industrialists with the participation of José Manuel Barroso
José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, went to Paris, where he took part in a discussion on European competitiveness with Members of the European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT), Angela Merkel, German Federal Chancellor, and François Hollande, President of the French Republic. This discussion followed the previous debate in Berlin on the same subject which was held on 18/03/2013.
The integrity of the euro area had been preserved, the recovery was there, but the economic crisis was not over. Unemployment rates were still quite high. Discussions focused on four important levers at European level: industrial policy, energy and climate, trade policy as well as the employment policy.
