This on-line discussion will focus on the issue of strategic autonomy and the new post-Covid industrial policy, a few months ahead of the start of the French Presidency to the European Union. Two major themes will be discussed, industrial strategy and level playing field.
He event will be centered around three highlights.
• An intervention by the Secretary of State for European Affairs, Clément Beaune, who will introduce the French government's vision on that subject.
• A contextualization by Gilles de Margerie, Commissioner General, France Stratégie, author of a remarkable report, published in mid-November 2020, on industrial policies in Europe.
• A panel discussion panel that will give the opportunity to hear about the European Commission’s strategy on industrial policy as well as its initiatives around "level playing field". We will have the pleasure to have two prestigious Directors-General of the European Commission, Kerstin Jorna (DG GROW), and Olivier Guersent (DG COMP). Speakers from the business world and the civil society will also bring their visions and provide concrete testimonies on these subjects.
The event will be interpreted in French and English.
