The difficulties of the industrial system of European countries have been very strong for the last 3 years, against the changes taking place in the international competition.

The current crisis has been compared by many people to that of the 30's. But the two of them, both originating in the United States, have had different origins: that of the 30's began as a crisis in the industrial sector and has subsequently reversed in the financial field, while for the second it has been exactly the opposite.

Today industrial crisis worsen more and more, with serious consequences for employment; investments in industry are declining, in particular in innovation and research; export capacity is reducing too. In this context, the risks of a deep industrial regression are bigger.

This situation has been determined in part by the sluggish recovery in Europe compared to the U.S. and Asia, with the aggravating circumstance of the over valuation of euro against dollar.

In order to try and solve this problem, European governments should constitute a permanent seat with the participation of social partners, to analyze the situation of the several industrial sectors, starting with those most at risk, in order to implement all necessary actions for maintenance and development of key areas such as: automobile, steel, chemical, textile, food processing, construction, telecommunications, electronics, . This in order to boost an eco-friendly development of quality that pivots on technological and products innovation.
