We also welcome our newly elected Treasurer General Director of ACCIO' (Catalan Government’s Agency for Business Competitiveness),Oriol Alcoba; and our new board member from Mazovia Region Sylwia Sztark, Head of Unit Department of Regional Development and European Funds.

During the meeting, we renewed our commitment to skills development within the Pact for Skills and EU funded projects; highlighted the importance of  the digital transition for the chemical sector; and strengthened our pledge to circular economy and plastics recycling. 

The next years will be a turning point for the chemical sector as a whole, and a regional approach can be key for a just transition of the industry.
