Círculo Fortuny participates in a meeting with the other ECCIA members and other high level representatives of fashion and high-end industries in a forum chaired by Ms. Bieńkowska, EU Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepeneurship and SMEs. An assessment of the Action Plan for fashion and high-end industries set out on December 2013 to maintain the industry competitiveness, growth and jobs in Europe, has been made during the meeting. The reinforcement of our substantial contribution to the European economy will strongly depend on our ability to preserve the desirability and quality of our products, to use stable and secure distribution networks, to promote non-technological innovation, while at the same time ensuring consumer trust in the authenticity of our products. Additionally, ECCIA representatives highlighted concrete actions to reach the above-mentioned challenges: strengthening the European framework of intellectual property protection; defining the rights and duties of all actors of the digital value chain; promoting skills and vocational training.
