On 29 April, Europacable hosted the 2015 Edition of its annual General Assembly. Europacable President Valerio Battista welcomed over 50 participants to the meeting which allowed for a high level exchange amongst Europacable members and discussions with our guest speakers.
Central to the 2015 General Assembly was the launch of the “Europacable Industry Charter” expressing the collective commitment to shared principles and objectives of ethical, sustainable and high-quality cable development and manufacturing. The Charter was signed by 13 companies present. We will shortly contact all remaining Europacable members inviting them to join this voluntary initiative prior to launching a wider spread communications outreach to make it known.
The morning session focussed on 2 updates from Brussels regarding the interconnections required to create the “Energy Union” as well as the broadband investments required to create the “Digital Single Market”. Industry related presentations on the challenges for the European wind industry, developments on metal markets, the impact of the oil price drop and an analysis and outlook of wire & cable industry complemented the program.
