Swedish & UK perspectives on Growth Prospects for the EU – what can we learn from the ICT and automotive sector?
Achieving economic growth and jobs in the EU in an environment where there is intensifying international competition is vital. Global growth is undeniably good news, but it also results in more commercial competitors for European industry. Every other developed country, including a recovering United States, is looking at how to be more competitive.
Europe has real structural problems and a concerted programme of reform to tackle these issues and create the conditions for sustainable growth, is therefore needed. But, the good news is that Europe has some competitive advantages that we can learn from.
The British Embassy Stockholm, the Ohlin institute and the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce would therefore like to invite you to a seminar to discuss these issues by looking at two sectors that have fared well in the European economy, the ICT and automotive industry. What can we learn from these two industries so that we can achieve European growth?Speakers:
The Rt Hon Dr. Vince Cable, the UK Secretary of State for Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills
Martin Lundstedt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Scania AB
David Mothander, Nordic Policy Counsel at Google
Maria Rankka, CEO of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce
