New Expert Group on Forest-based Industries and Sectorally Related Issues
On the 27 June 2014, the European Commission set up the Expert Group on Forest-based Industries and Sectorally Related Issues to which EOS was appointed as one of the members. The group will be instrumental in implementing the new strategy for the EU Forest-based Industries for the period 2014-20 to boost the competitiveness of woodworking, furniture, paper and printing sectors in Europe. It will provide a forum for consultation, discussion and co-operation between the Commission, Member States, and a broad range of sectoral stakeholders active in the entire value chain from the industry and civil society. DG GROWTH will chair the Expert Group.
