  1. MET industries are particularly sensitive to the economic changes which we see occuring;
  2. While in some Member States, production figures remain high, and at present, exports continue to drive growth both inside and outside of the EU;
  3. The investment gap continues to be a problem for the MET sector;
  4. Digitalisation in itself is a huge boost to the industries Ceemet represents;
  5. The upcoming economic situation is both fragile and unpredictable. We must ensure that as the primary exporter in the EU, the MET industries are not hampered vis-a-vis its competitors.
