Webcast 005 | Europe's re-discovered growth | 17th January 2014

Dr Rebecca Harding argues in this webcast that Europe’s long term growth will be driven by its global supply chains and it is time for policy makers to focus policy on competitiveness as this is critical to Europe’s future. Europe’s car sector exports, for example, accounts for nearly 50% of world exports and the supply chain that supports this is woven into the fabric of intra-European trade as well as its trade with emerging economies. Through its key sector supply chains, cars, pharmaceuticals and hi-tech electronic products for example, Europe’s industrial strength will help to correct internal balances as well as drive trade globally. Exports to Brazil will grow by 5.2% in 2014, to China by 7% and to India by 3% despite relatively flat growth within Europe in 2014. This will ensure that recovery is sustained.
