La emergencia de nuevos poderes económicos en un mundo de competencia globalizada, proteccionismo, distorsión de ciertos mercados y de tensiones comerciales, requiere de una respuesta europea y también de los Estados Miembro con una política industrial. La Comisión apuesta por huir del proteccionismo y propone una política industrial en la que la competencia se erige como el ingrediente básico. En un país donde la industria supone casi un 20% del PIB, el Gobierno Vasco tiene como objetivo definir una política industrial que tenga en cuenta los retos del futuro en el marco del Green Deal, la digitalización y el alineamiento con la política de competencia, todo ello en el marco de la Comunicación de la Comisión de 10 de marzo de 2020.
