The relentless forces of global competition and regional liberalization have precipitated a redefinition of industrial policies within the European Union. This book advances a comprehensive account of the resultant European industrial competitiveness policy framework and its ten constituent elements. It also illustrates how individual instruments of this policy-set shape the European business environment and affect the competitiveness of firms.
