Environmental Sustainability And Greater Aggregation Is Hoped For From the Newly-appointed Chairman of the ICT

The Giornale di Vicenza of 22nd January carried an article of importance to the Vicenza tanning industry: Rino Mastrotto was appointed Chairman of the International council of tanners, which goes to prove, as the newly appointed Chairman himself says, the important role of the Vicenza tanning sector in the world. According to the data given in the article, the Arzignano district represents 52% of Italian production and approx. 32% of European production. The newly-appointed Chairman, who takes up his position in 2014, wishes for improvements in the context of environmental sustainability where the Arzignano district is already at maximum levels and in the commercial context where less individualism and greater capacity for aggregation is to be hoped for.
