EU unveils LeaderSHIP 2015 planNews // November 7, 2003
Said the EU in a recent statement: "LeaderSHIP 2015 provides a sector-specific response to the EU's longer term strategy for economic, social and environmental renewal."
The LeaderSHIP 2015 High Level Advisory Group, which was called together by Commissioner Erkki Liikanen in January 2003, consists of leading personalities in the field - from individual companies, industry associations and trade unions - seven European Commissioners with responsibilities that relate to shipbuilding and two Members of the European Parliament.
Their report summarises the results of an intense discussion process among stakeholders, based on eight key areas, for which further targeted action is identified. Dedicated chapters for each of the key areas describe the challenges and spell out concrete recommendations.
The complete report is available from the EU web site.
