Potocnik on competitiveness instruments: same aim, different angl

Abstract:
Mr Potocnik accepted that the industry playing field must be simplified, and that some deregulation is necessary. But 'regulation and deregulation go hand-in-hand. The picture is not black and white,' he insisted. He cited the example of nanotechnology, where the Commission acted quickly to introduce regulations and manage risk. 'If you don't regulate early and fast enough, business will be the loser,' he told participants.
