    Competitiveness
Ref. Ares(2016)2126156 - 04/05/2016
Begins with Confidence
President Juncker is demonstrating decisive leadership 
in the design of the new Commission and by clearly 
differentiating many policy lines from the past.
The key to success is in building confidence. 
That extends to business confidence too.
Care must be taken not to simply talk competitiveness 
while undermining the industry we have. The EU must 
nurture a broad and balanced industrial base, especially 
its existing manufacturing industry, to sustain the 
 
European economy of the twenty first century.
Policies once set must not be systematically revisited 
and changed. That destroys investor confidence. 
The EU must re-establish itself as a reliable location to 
invest, so that boardrooms in Europe and around the 
world extend existing manufacturing operations in the 
EU and inject new investment.
The simple truth is that business needs stable policy  
and legal certainty to invest with confidence. Do the right 
thing, please, Mr. President!
GOOD LUCK TO THE JUNCKER COMMISSION.
