HLG on the Competitiveness - Chemical industry
The final report reflects the outcome of the deliberations of the High Level Group on the Competitiveness of the Chemicals Industry in the European Union chaired by Commission Vice-President Verheugen which was set up with Commission Decision 2007/418/EC of 14 June 2007 to address issues that determine the competitiveness of the Community chemicals industry.
In particular the Group had the task to conduct economic and statistical analysis of the factors determining the structural changes in the chemicals industry as well as other factors that influence its competitive position. Based on this it had the mandate to formulate a set of sector-specific policy recommendations addressed at policy makers at the Community and national level, industry and civil society organisations (see Annex 1 to this Report).
