The Commission's proposal on industrial policy is a step in the right direction, but the EU needs a long term, comprehensive strategy: this is one of the conclusions of the debate at the Employers' Group meeting on 6 December 2017. The aim of the debate was to contribute to two opinions on industrial policy that the EESC is currently working on.

 The European Commission is proposing to revise the so-called Posting of Workers Directive from 1996, which affects some 2 million workers in the EU. Posted workers are employed in one Member State, but sent to work temporarily in another country by their employer. The general view of the EESC Employers' Group is that the existing EU legislation on the posting of workers - namely the original 1996 Posting Directive and the 2014 Enforcement Directive which aims to strengthen the practical implementation of the Posting Directive -  strikes a proper and fair balance between supporting the cross-border provision of services and protecting the rights of posted workers.

Enligt en ny studie på uppdrag av Europeiska ekonomiska och sociala kommittén genererar gränsöverskridande tjänster nya arbetstillfällen och ekonomisk tillväxt. Dessa tjänster är positiva för alla EU-länder och för olika typer av arbetstillfällen – både arbets- och kunskapsintensiva. Genom dokumentet bevisar man att det gynnar EU:s ekonomi att undvika stränga regler vad gäller den inre marknaden för gränsöverskridande tjänster. En procents minskning av andelen gränsöverskridande tjänster skulle kosta EU:s ekonomi omkring 8 miljarder euro.

Over the years, European value chains have become increasingly relevant to employment in the EU. While research on industrial value chains is broadly covered in recent years, the effects of value-chains in European service sectors still needs to be quantified. Especially the impact of cross border services in the EU need further coverage. This study tries to fill this gap by quantifying the number of employees dependent on the exports of services to other member states.
