Alliance for a Competitive European Industry

The Alliance for a Competitive European Industry (ACEI) was created in 2004 to harness the collective intelligence of 11 of Europe’s leading industry sector associations and BUSINESSEUROPE.  

The ACEI provides a proactive vision to EU policymakers on how to promote the competitiveness of the European industry on a global scale and transform it towards a sustainable and low-carbon future.  The manufacturing industry and its skilled workforce are at the heart of Europe’s prosperity.
