675 views

On 24 Huly 2013, 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.
