Cersaie 2017, European manufacturing in the world at the centre of the opening conference

Speak of Italy, and you talk about Europe. At Cersaie 2017 there will be a high awareness of that the ceramic industry represents not only one of the key sectors of manufacturing tradition in Italy but also an essential element in the economy of the major European countries.

And, the current challenges for the development of European industry in increasingly competitive global markets will be at the centre of the inaugural conference of the 35th edition of the International Exhibit of Ceramics and Bathroom Furnishings scheduled for Monday 25th September at 11:00 a.m. at the EuropAuditorium of the Palazzo dei Congressi in Bologna.

The meeting will be entitled “Sustainability and competitiveness of European manufacturing in the international context”. The conference will be opened with a comment from the President of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Stefano Bonaccini, moderated by Maria Latella, and will include the presence of the Minister of the Environment, Gian Luca Galletti, the President of Confindustria [The Italian Manufacturing Companies Association], Vincenzo Boccia, Antonio Tajani, the President of the European Parliament, and Vittorio Borelli, the President of the Italian Ceramic Manufacturing Companies Association.

Italian ceramics manufacturers use the highest environmental protection and social standards in the world, and the level of investments of these past few years has been greater than 7% of the turnover proving the commitment that companies are making in innovations and the continuous improvement of performance.  Very often this commitment goes beyond the EU regulatory requirements, reasonably the most rigorous at international level but at risk of inexorably displacing businesses if not accompanied by necessary bureaucratic simplifications in Italy as well as adequate European legislation to effectively counteract dumped imports.

The opening conference of Cersaie 2017, the world's leading trade show in the ceramic sector, is a key opportunity to focus on these issues and the critical issues to be overcome within our country and in Brussels.
