Most of the items included in the Communication are in process of implementation. These include the recent Communication on cars, the upcoming green paper on financing, launching of the High-Level Group on Business services, as well as upcoming fitness checks being prepared (petroleum refining and aluminium).
As concerns the six priority action linesof the Communication, the "task forces" are now being established in the Commission. One unit of Directorate General Enterprise and Industry will take the lead for each action line, and units of other Directorates General or other units of Directorate General Enterprise and Industry will cooperate in the implementation process. Each of the task forces will co-ordinate policies and actions.
The task forces have now defined their respective roadmaps, objectives, timetables and deliverables. Their basic task is to identify how to speed up investment in the priority areas. They will invite stakeholders to take part in the definition of these tasks. The composition of the task forces is for the respective leaders to decide upon. It is vital for them to establish contacts with industry, and define clear objectives, instruments (PPPs etc.) and timeline, keeping the Communication's horizontal measures in mind.
