Speaking at the European Aluminium Spring conference “New Industrial Policy” in Brussels yesterday, Raul Gil, Chairman of the Europacable Energy Team, stressed:
“The cable industry is ready to build Europe´s future energy infrastructures, we´re driving innovation and we don´t shy away from competition. This said, we are calling for a level playing field and fair competition.”
The EAA conference brought together some 250 senior representatives from international policy making, industry and value chain. Set against the context of the current “turbulent times”, it called on the European Commission as well as Member State governments to drive forward a new industry policy notably with a view to China.
EAA used the event to present its now I+ Manifesto, calling to action for a new European governance to coordinate industry policies across Europe.
The conference was accompanied by an exhibition of Aluminium applications, including EHV cable samples provided by several Europacable members.
