POLICY & PEOPLE: A Comprehensive Industrial Policy to Adapt to the “New Normal” Society after the Covid-19 Pandemic

Industrial policy aims to strengthen the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector and, as a result, the whole economy. This strategy gives also the tools to face global challenges and seize the opportunities offered by new technologies and the single market.
