The article reports on new policies of the European Union (EU) for the chemical industry of Europe. The new policy, Reach, was said to either help enhance companies' global effectiveness and innovative capacity or destroy it. The EU also launched its high level group on energy, competitiveness and the environment. The traditional chemical industry is becoming global, with much of the mainstream manufacturing migrating to Asia. Low-cost producers are having a profound effect on the balance of supply and demand.
