Keynote speech at the EU Competitiveness Council (industry ministers), Sopot,
This keynote speech at the informal European Competitiveness Council (industry ministers) addresses the uneasy relationship of industrial and environmental policies, which was among the core agendas of the Polish EU presidency in 2011. In the presentation, emphasis is given to the major trade-offs and opportunities involved, and the central role of productivity growth to mitigate the former and exploit the latter. It is argued that policy can make a big difference, e.g., in terms of regulation, innovation or investment promotion.
