Commissioner Bieńkowska Heads the First Forum on Fashion & High-End Industries
Participating in the high-level Forum on the fashion and high-end industries led by the Commissioner Bieńkowska, EURATEX underlined the importance of support to SMEs’ internationalisation and access to innovation funding.
In December 2013, an Action Plan for fashion and high-end industries was adopted to set out concrete actions to strengthen the competiveness of the European fashion and high-end industries. The Action Plan also established a multi-stakeholder Forum aimed at monitoring the implementation of Plan’s actions and outlining the future developments.
On 16 June, the Forum was for the first time headed by the Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska. EURATEX’ representatives were among 26 industry representatives invited to discuss the way forward of the Action Plan.
