On 16 May 2012, the European Commission launched a consultation with the aim of obtaining stakeholders views in preparation for the mid-term review of the industrial policy flagship planned for September 2012. The responses will assist the Commission in identify policy priorities and develop appropriate policy responses in the September 2012 Communication. The industrial policy flagship, which forms part of the Europe 2020 Strategy, was launched in October 2010 and outlined a strategy for industrial competitiveness, sustainable economic growth and job creation. The Communication itself will focus on specific new initiatives which could effectively deliver results to tackle the economic crisis in the short- to medium-term. Stakeholders have until 7 August 2012 to respond to the Consultation.
