    23 March 2016

    European chemical industry needs a strong and competitive advantage in order to remain a key exporting region in the world. This can only be achieved through three key policy areas:
    1. Competitive energy pricing by means of an effective single European energy market;
    2. A strong and determined commitment to better regulation and pro-innovation policies;
    3. A strong free trade commitment, focused on the removal of both tariff and ‘behind the border’ barriers to trade with all our (major) trading partners.
