Participation of Antonio Tajani, in the "Europe 2020 Strategy for growth" conference


On 18 February 2014, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, participated with Elio Di Rupo, Belgian Prime Minister, in the Europe 2020 strategy for growth conference in La Louvière, Wallonia, Belgium. Issues discussed included internationalisation and access to markets of SMEs, key enabling technologies as well as clusters and regional specialisation. Antonio Tajani was accompanied by 500 representatives of companies from 37 countries, many of whom participated in more than 800 bilateral meetings with SMEs from Wallonia to form new partnerships and discuss opportunities for collaboration in key sectors active in the region such as aeronautics, mechatronics, logistics and creative industries. Antonio Tajani used this opportunity to introduce COSME, a new programme for SMEs which aims to address the main challenges they are facing, such as access to financing, access to foreign markets, improvement of the business environment and support to entrepreneurs.
