ITALIAN PROUD: According to data provided by Confindustria Moda, the Italian association covering around 67,000 firms in fashion, textiles and accessories, exports of the sector increased 5.6 percent to 16.6 billion euros in the first three months of 2019, compared with the same period last year.

“Together we do it better. These results clearly demonstrate this. In the past few years we worked all together to create a strong system able to support different companies facing similar problems,” said Confindustria Moda president Claudio Marenzi during a plenary assembly in Milan on Wednesday. “We are the only fully integrated supply chain and we were able to combine artisanal heritage and craftsmanship with a successful industrial structure which represents our country in the world.

We will be able to succeed only if we face them together.”
