Euratex launches new strategic course
European Apparel and Textile Confederation (Euratex) has launched a new strategic course. It will strengthen the voice of the European textile and apparel industry with the European policy institutions in Brussels as well as governmental bodies and partner organisations around the globe. EU textile industry represents an annual turnover of over €171 billion.

To better reflect its members’ objectives and priorities which in addition to trade and industry policies encompass policy areas such as sustainability, innovation and skills, the board of directors of Euratex has decided to undertake a comprehensive strategy review. This process will conclude at end of 2018 and will be led by three newly appointed policy directors Isabelle Weiler (trade and industry), Lutz Walter (innovation and skills) and Mauro Scalia (sustainable businesses).

"Our industry has undergone a dramatic transformation and the priorities of our companies are broader and their visions more far-reaching than ever. Our representative organisation in Brussels is crucial to safeguard the interests of our industry and to engage with EU policy makers and other key stakeholders in new ways. I have full confidence in our broadened leadership team and its reinforced staff in the Brussels office to deliver on our ambitious programme. I would like to thank Francesco Marchi for the professionalism and dedication with which he served the organisation in over two decades. We wish him all the best for his personal and professional future," Klaus Huneke, president of Euratex said. (RR)
