European values & achievements in textile and apparel field
Feb '08
“A celebration of European values, achievements and ambitions in the textile and apparel field” was the term used by EURATEX President Michele TRONCONI at the conclusion on Friday 15th February of the Milan Conference entitled “European Fashion and Innovation in tandem with EU values – A Win-Win Formula” organised under the auspices of the European Commission and its Vice-President Günther VERHEUGEN.

The event was organised in conjunction with the Italian Government, SMI- the Italian textile and apparel federation, the European Trades Union for textiles and apparel, ETUF-TCL, and EURATEX.

Mr. TRONCONI stated: “We were extremely pleased that Vice-President VERHEUGEN should have given us this opportunity to demonstrate the creativity and innovation which is omnipresent in the European textile and apparel industry. In so doing he has made clear his belief in the future of our industry and in its ability to overcome today's challenges.

Today's event has shown how an industry with a glorious past can look forward with confidence into the future. It has to ally its world-wide leadership in fashion with the use of new technologies to create innovative products serving the medical and health sectors, to transport, to building and to energy conservation to name just a few.

The Conference has highlighted how European values in the social, ethical and environmental fields have progressed to the point where our health and safety levels and our environmental standards ensure that the consumer can purchase textile and apparel articles made in Europe with certainty that they comply with the highest ethical and safety standards. I am convinced that there is indeed growing consumer awareness on this issue”
