The Catalan government’s priority is to devise a strategic plan of action for developing different fields of the fashion industry, such as entrepreneurship, marketing, training, funding, etc., he added.
The summit, which was held parallel to the 13th edition of the 080 Barcelona Fashion event, saw participation from over 350 professionals and experts from leading domestic and international firms operating in the sector, who met under the same roof to discuss about the key emerging trends in the Catalan as well as Spanish fashion industry.
