Spanish Intertextil Council to remain functional
May '14
The Spanish Intertextil Council (CIE) has announced that it would continue its operations and work collectively towards the betterment of the Spanish textile and clothing industry, despite the separation of Spanish Association of Knitwear (AEGP) and the Spanish Federation of Apparel Companies (FEDECON) from the council, reports Europa Press.

The CIE’s executive committee recently held a meeting in the Spanish city of Castellon, with the aim of discussing strategies to continue its task of developing the textile industry in the country, by reorganizing the structure of CIE to accommodate the loss from the separation of the two entities.

The executive committee voiced its disappointment over the decision of AEGP and FEDECON to discontinue its alliance with CIE, stating that the unprecedented move undermines the unity of the council and tarnishes the reputation of CIE.

Alejandro Laquidain, chairman of the CIE, said the announcement of both the apparel bodies’ separation from CIE has resulted in a crisis situation for the council as the association would lose strength.

Mr. Laquidain explained that although CIE is disappointed with the decision, it has still left the door open, if the apparel bodies wish to return and continue working collectively with the council.

The CIE now consists of the following members—the Textile Entrepreneurs Association of Valencia (ATEVAL), as well as the Federation of Wool, Industrial Association for Processing Cotton, Textile Federation of Sedera and the National Federation of Dyes, Chemicals and Textile Finishings, collectively known as TEXFOR.

Last month, the AEGP and FEDECON, which collectively represent 70 percent of the Spanish finished garment goods industry, announced discontinuation of their association with the CIE, in order to find new ways and paths for development.
