The Committee approaches the report from three different angles in its opinion: first, it comments on the idea of the Energy Union itself; secondly, it analyses the progress made towards achieving the Energy Union's objectives; and lastly, it examines the monitoring and reporting undertaken for the State of the Energy Union.

    The automotive industry on the brink of a new paradigm? (Information report) Adopted References: CCMI/148 EESC-2017 Exploratory Opinion Rapporteur: Georgi STOEV (Employers - GR I / Bulgaria) Co-rapporteur: Monika SITÁROVÁ HRUSECKÁ (Workers - GR II / Slovakia) Plenary Session: 22 Feb 2017 - 23 Feb 2017

    The survey initiated by the EESC on the automotive industry and its value chain was inspired by the GEAR 2030 initiative and the changes taking place in this sector. It is expected that the new challenges of electrification, digitisation, connectivity and mobility will define the structural transformation of traditional automobile manufacturing. During the next decade, innovation and transformation will take place much more quickly than they have done over the course of the last century.The survey initiated by the EESC on the automotive industry and its value chain was inspired by the GEAR 2030 initiative and the changes taking place in this sector.

    Strengthening European personal care, hygiene and cosmetic products industries Adopted References: CCMI/143 Own-initiative Rapporteur: Madi Sharma (Employers - GR I / United Kingdom) Co-rapporteur: Dirk Jarré (Various interests - GR III / Germany)

    Europe has always played a key role in the innovation and development of personal care, body hygiene and beauty products. However its leading position has progressively been eroded in the process of global competition. While the innovative capacity of Europe’s specialised enterprises is very impressive, the production and commercialisation of European inventions have shifted to other parts of the world with serious economic and social consequences for Europe in terms of benefits, labour opportunities and incentives for research and development. To strengthen this particular branch of industry by appropriate strategies will lead to a major contribution to industrial reshoring and industrial development.

    The automotive industry on the brink of a new paradigm? (Information report) Ongoing References: CCMI/148 Rapporteur: Georgi Stoev (Employers - GR I / Bulgaria) Co-rapporteur: Monika Sitárová Hrusecká (Slovakia)

    The European car industry employs 2.5 million workers. Together they account for 8% of total value added in industry. Indirectly the sector provides employment for 12 million workers. European exports of cars are twice as big as imports, resulting in a large trade surplus. European assembly plants produce one out of three cars worldwide. The sector is highly innovative as it accounts for 20% of industrial research funding in Europe.

    Steel: Preserving sustainable jobs and growth in Europe Adopted References: CCMI/146 Referral - Rapporteur: Andrés Barceló Delgado (Employers - GR I / Spain) Co-rapporteur: Enrico Gibellieri (Italy)

    If the message of this opinion should be summarised in a sentence, this would be: "Enough is enough; rules must be respected".

    Steel industry is at the forefront of granting MES to China. However, the opinion does not tackle the legal and political side of granting MES to China (CCMI/144). It focuses on the Commission's communication and puts forward specific additional measures to provide Europe's steel industry with the level playing field it needs to preserve growth and jobs.
