With a new team, representative of the entire national territory and of all sectors of the textile supply chain, through a mutually constructive relationship, Francesco Ferraris, vice president of the Biellese Industrial Union, sits from today on the armchair of the Youth Group of Sistema Moda Italia. The Finishing and Dyeing entrepreneur Ferraris di Benna, succeeds Marco Cardinalini and will lead the section for the three-year period 2021-2024.
“Representing young people in our sector, in a historical context such as the one we are experiencing, will also be a great burden, but it is precisely during these changes in the era that important opportunities open up that, I am sure, a group like this will be able to seize and share to be a stimulus to all those who will be our interlocutors – comments Ferraris -. The topic of Training remains central, already successfully carried out by the previous presidency because there are thousands of requests for the insertion of specialized figures in our sector that have not yet been answered and the number of open positions will grow even more in the coming years: skills techniques and the value of
work must return to central. But we know that education alone is not enough, a broader education is needed: we must be able to pass on to the new generations the values of the business culture that make Made In Italy great in the world ».
The Ferraris objectives do not lack a space dedicated to the supply chain and the importance of teamwork: the GGI represents an extract of all the product facets that the sector offers, and is therefore a point of exchange of opinions and a network that makes it is possible for young entrepreneurs to enrich themselves and consolidate their experiences, to bring renewed vigor within the companies, associations and companies in which they operate. Then sustainability, understood as a balance of three factors: economic, social and environmental: «A transversal and essential concept – he continues -. The pandemic has further accelerated the awareness process of consumers, who are now increasingly attentive to the use of ethically correct behaviors and policies. We want to support companies in the development of a radical cultural change: all the people at the center of the company as well as of society must be protagonists of the change “.
