Europe must set a good example in terms of free trade
04.07.2017 Europe has found itself with a great opportunity to promote free trade with partner countries authoritatively. The mechanical engineering industry is appealing to the EU and its member states to take advantage of this opportunity and ensure European prosperity for decades to come.
European investment control would be an own goal
23.06.2017 Several EU states are pressing for control of investments at European level. VDMA warns against making Europe an unattractive location for foreign investors.
VDMA’s office in Brussels bridges the gap between business and politics. The association informs its member companies about political developments that affect mechanical engineering. For policymakers in Brussels, the European Office (EurO) is a reliable point of contact with in-depth knowledge about the mechanical engineering industry to ensure that lawmaking does not happen in isolation from the real world in which companies operate.
