    which?

    Hi,

    Could anyone explain for me why is "which" used this way? Thanks!

    sentence: How can the European Union contribute to the development of a European film and television programme industry which is competitive in the world market, forward looking and capable of radiating the influence of European culture and of creating jobs in Europe?

    I prefer to use this way: How can the European Union contribute to the development of a European film and television programme industry to make it competitive in the world market, forward looking and capable of radiating the influence of European culture and of creating jobs in Europe?

    Re: which?

    It is a relative pronoun, its antecedent being "(a European film and television programme) industry".
