Reshoring of EU manufacturing

21-03-2014

Rising costs in formerly low-cost countries, and particularly China, have recently brought reshoring – bringing back manufacturing – to the fore. The hope is for a return of the many jobs that left the EU from the 1980s through to the 2000s.

Updated product rules for recreational boats

03-10-2013

The EU has some 6 million motor boats, sailing boats and personal watercraft (jet skis) used for sports and leisure, i.e. non-commercial purposes. The European Commission has proposed to update the Directive which sets out the requirements for such craft to be put on the EU market. In particular it would further tighten environmental requirements and enhance measures to ensure compliance.

Corporate tax avoidance by multinational firms

23-09-2013

The tax reduction methods used by multinational companies have been well known for decades. They include transfer pricing, the use of lower-tax jurisdictions, over-charging entities in higher-tax countries to reduce taxable profit and (legally) completing a transaction in a lower-tax country, different to the country which the business relates to. The problem is relatively clear and law-makers want a situation where businesses not only operate within the letter but also the spirit of the law.

Re-use of public sector information

06-06-2013

The EU public sector information (PSI) market for digital content products and services was estimated to be worth €28 billion in 2008. Opening up greater access had the potential to add €40 billion per annum of further revenue. The proposed revision to the first PSI directive aims to correct differences arising among Member States, improve access and ensure the effective cross-border use of public sector data.

Business relocation in the EU

10-04-2013

Businesses continuously relocate for three main reasons: improved access to markets, lower costs and better skills. There are many factors that need to be looked at in comparing locations. Some of the main ones are labour (costs, availability, productivity and skills), the infrastructure (communication, transport....), the legal, polit­ical and reg­ulatory environment, the size of the domestic market and investment incentives.

A picture of the EU car industry

28-02-2013

2012 was a tough year for the EU car industry. The perennial problem of surplus production capacity in Europe (15% in 2012) is allied to a mature (roughly flat since 2001) domestic market and buyers facing austerity.

Improving SMEs' access to finance

31-01-2013

Small and medium-sized enterprises are important to the EU economy, but are struggling due to lack of funding. In December 2011, the European Commission (EC) adopted a detailed non-legislative action plan (COM(2011) 870) presenting new ideas for finance and regulation as well as sharing of best practice. The EP is calling for support for a broader range of finance, in response to the problems of the credit crunch.

Social welfare protection: the EU, USA and China

08-01-2013

Since the 1980s largely ageing populations in developed countries have meant pressure for real budget increases for healthcare and pensions. This pressure remains present in the austerity-hit EU, where social welfare protection already accounts for a large part of Member State (MS) governments' costs. The US, with the world’s largest economy, has its own distinct welfare system. China has recently started to focus on welfare with significant budgetary increases, albeit from a relatively low base. ...
