Spain's CIE discontinues membership with EURATEX
Jan '14
The Spanish textile industry will no longer have a representation in Europe, as the Spanish Intertextil Council (CIE) is discontinuing its membership this year with the European Apparel and Textile Confederation (EURATEX), reports modaes.es.
The CIE which constitutes of five textile and clothing associations of Spain, namely Confederation of Textile Industries (TEXFOR), Association of Textile Entrepreneurs of Valencia (ATEVAL), the Spanish Federation of Garments (FEDECON), the Spanish Association of Knitwear (AEGP) and Center of Information for Textiles and Clothing (CITYC), will no longer be associated with EURATEX as the Spanish consortium is unable to pay the membership fee.
Alejandro Laquidain, president of CIE said the five Spanish associations have not met with the payments for the membership of EURATEX in recent years, due to a lack of budget, and in the past year it has been impossible for CIE to grant a funding for the same owing to the absence of consensus between representatives of the five associations that form the CIE.
The frictions that currently exist within textile and clothing associations are beyond a point of agreement, and the differences between TEXFOR, FEDECON and AEGP have prevented CIE from approving budgets as well as postponed the latest budget proposals, he added.
The CIE official said that there is no consensus even among council members of CIE to enforce payment of the EURATEX membership fee and facilitate reentry of CIE in the European consortium.
However, Mr. Laquidain said that despite difficulties it is essential for the Spanish textile industry to be represented in the European consortium and the CIE would be trying to make the payments by the end of 2014.
EURATEX is the European confederation representing the interests of the European textile and clothing industries as a whole. EURATEX is the recognized official body for the textile and clothing industry at European and international level.
