Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


This publication provides the reader with key information on industry and services in the EU, answering many of the questions being asked by economic players. It begins with a summary of trends in the operations of European businesses in industry and services, and covers a number of subjects common to all of them - globalisation, innovation, the dissemination of information and communication technologies, etc. It then looks at each of the sectors in question, industry first and then services, providing for each of these time series for the main indicators (production, employment, productivity, external trade, etc.) and expanding on individual topics of relevance. Trends are analysed for the period 1990 to 2000 for industry and for 1995 to 2000 for services. Most of the figures come from Eurostat's harmonised databases and are supplemented with information provided by professional associations.
