It is an honor for me to be here today. The London School of Economics is a world-famous institute of economics, philosophy and political science. But above all, it is a model of tolerant, open and free intellectual thought...
Innanzitutto grazie per l'invito. Come ricorderete, lo scorso aprile vi ho esposto le linee generali della Comunicazione sull’industria della difesa, poi approvata a luglio.
Ora, in vista del decisivo Consiglio europeo di dicembre, vorrei attirare la vostra attenzione sulle quattro priorità da portare avanti per l’industria della difesa, e che sono parte del testo della Commissione.
Mi riferisco in particolare (1) al corretto funzionamento del mercato interno della difesa; (2) al sostegno per le Piccole e medie imprese; (3) a standardizzazione e certificazione; (4) e alla ricerca
It is an honour to be here with you today. But I am not coming alone. I am coming accompanied by more than 40 companies and associations from 15 EU Member States. The combined turnover of the companies joining this mission is of € 96 billion representing, in absolute terms, more than the GDP of Slovakia and Latvia together which is € 94 billion.
After the two visits this week to Vietnam and to Myanmar, I start to know the majority of you. However, there are also some new participants to this final stage of this Mission for Growth to Asia. With this Mission I want to give a signal to our partners that Europe is in business and that it wants to extend its cooperation with the governments and companies of the countries we are visiting. It is also a mission for the internationalisation of our Small and Medium Sized Enterprises.
Thank you for welcoming me here today. Thank you also for not only welcoming me, but also all the companies and trade associations who have joined me to this Mission for Growth to Thailand.
Thank you as well for your presentation of the “European ASEAN Business Centre” (EABC) of which you are the President.
This was already a perfect introduction for what I would like to say today about the promotion of the internationalisation of European companies in Thailand.
This first meeting of the EU-Myanmar Task Force, taking place following the reform process initiated two years ago, has created great expectations. Our challenge is to meet them.
As you know, yesterday more than 100 EU representatives of enterprises and business associations, and even more from Myanmar, spent the day discussing the way forward in our business partnerships, trade and investment relations.
Today half of them are still spending the day in Yangon deepening the bilateral contacts and discovering the new economic reality of your country, paying visits on the ground like the Special Economic Zone of Thilawa.
