Industry 4.0, no threat but an opportunity

Thanks to the new covenant that was approved by the Flemish Government, extra resources will become available to continue supporting our Flemish manufacturing companies in their transition to Industry 4.0. This trend to customised products, far-reaching automation, digitisation and interconnection need not be a threat to companies and employment. On the contrary. We consider it an opportunity that we should not miss out on to help our manufacturing industry to accelerate and deepen their innovation efforts and, as a result, create additional jobs.
