00:01:19 Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that one pillar is to reinforce steel demand in Europe through car industry policy, then for building and shipbuilding. The third pillar is dedicated to competition policy. The EU is not protectionist but text is obvious, competition must be defended, having a good commercial policy. The fourth pillar is for energy policy, as you know prices for energy are incredibly high in Europe; climate, resources and energy efficiency to reinforce competition. The fifth pillar is for innovation, the sixth for reorganisation and for workers. 00:01:05

00:02:34 Soundbite by Antonio Tajani (in FRENCH) saying that regarding commercial policy, they want to guarantee for European steel producers, for market to non EU countries - written inside the steel plan text - protectionists measures which do exist in some countries in the world and prevent a fair competition; then European steel might play in Paris a game with eleven against eleven, and in another country, nine against thirteen. That is unbelievable; they must play the same rules, in Paris and elsewhere. 00:00:42

00:03:52 Soundbite by Arnaud Montebourg (in FRENCH) saying that he would like to thank the Commission and the College for having put as objective getting back to 20% of the European Gross Domestic Product (GDP) the share of the industry which falls down to 15% average, that is a very voluntaristic goal, they thank the Commission for that and in particular the Commissioner who inspired this proposal. 00:00:25

00:04:27 Soundbite by Arnaud Montebourg (in FRENCH): Time has come to protect their industrial interests. They cannot accept unfair competition by relocation of industrial production especially in steel industry. They have suffered enough damage in Europe; time has come for the Commission to take it with both hands, and he thanks the steel plan general statement on behalf of the European Commission aiming to protect them against unfair competition which kills their production capacity in Europe. 00:00:29
