VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies: European Industry meeting with election of new board of directors
This year's VDMA TFL industry meeting took place on 14 and 15 November in Berlin. For many years, the trade association has been committed to Europeanisation and this year, too, further European members have joined the ranks. "Only together as a European industry can we form an antithesis to the current global framework conditions and remain competitive," said Elgar Straub, Managing Director of the TFL trade association. The consequences of the trade dispute between the USA and China and the unclear Brexit situation are causing great uncertainty and unrest in the markets. The industry is also feeling this, and strong European cohesion is the necessary response to the current political and economic situation.
