On 30 November, the EESC, in cooperation with the Maltese Chamber of Commerce, is organising a conference on "EU industrial policy – does a one-size-fits-all approach work?" The implementation of the EU industrial policy will be discussed, with reference to topics such as innovation, internationalisation and governance. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to analyse the challenges facing Maltese industry in terms of competitiveness. In addition, the event will enable Malta's business and political representatives to speak out their needs and expectations from European and national industrial policies.

Islands have special characteristics and therefore face particular problems. However, their very specific situation can also offer opportunities if, with the necessary effort from all parties concerned, policies are developed and implemented which create sustainable growth and, at the same time, job opportunities for the young generation, competiveness and innovation, whilst respecting the environment and cultural heritage. This conference is foreseen in the Smart Islands project, and is aimed at showcasing and discussing best practices to help islands develop in a sustainable and "smart" manner.
