After five years of the Eurozone crisis and with the first preliminary signs of recovery in sight, businesses, labour and policy makers are intensely seeking new avenues to strengthen manufacturing and re-energise this vital sector for the European economy.

The Financial Times brought together senior business leaders and policy makers for a unique, high level discussion on the particular opportunities and challenges facing industry in Europe. The debate was centered on the fundamental adjustments that policy makers and business leaders need to make in order to revitalise European industry and strengthen long-term European competitiveness.
