Ceemet Christmas Reception in the framework of the EU elections

On December 6, 2023, Ceemet organised its Christmas reception to present its contribution to the EU elections in 2024. A diverse panel of distinguished speakers engaged in discussions about the future of the metal, engineering and technology-based industries in the EU.

In his introductory remarks, the President of Ceemet, Rainer Ludwig, reminded participants that, “after years of successive crises and faced with an onerous regulatory burden and high energy costs, there is no question that the competitiveness of European industry has taken a major hit. The EU must do more to ensure that Europe is an attractive location to invest and do business”. This is why Ceemet has come forward with its contribution for the upcoming EU elections on how to achieve a more competitive and social industry in Europe. The Ceemet document, entitled“For a more competitive industry in a stronger Europe: a Ceemet perspective, provides a blueprint for establishing a robust manufacturing sector, fundamental to the success of our social market economy.
