In addition to the usual EPMA activity and Sectoral Group presentations during the General Assembly there were also EuroMIM, EuroPress&Sinter and EuroHIP meetings and two external presentations. The first external presentation was provided by Guy Thiran, Director General of Eurometaux on the topic of 'Legislation and Lobbying', centred around the activities of Eurometaux and how they provide lobbying activities on the various metal sectors to the various EU parliamentary bodies and how EPMA Members can benefit from this activity.
The second external presentation on the Friday afternoon was provided by Sigrid de Vries, Secretary General of CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers) on the subject of ‘The Future of the Automotive Supply Industry’. EPMA have become a member of CLEPA to assist with the lobbying of EPMA Members associated to the automotive industry. This was a thought provoking presentation explaining the state of the industry and what future threats and opportunities may lie ahead for the powder metallurgy supply chain sector. There was the ability for a question and answer session to delve deeper into some of the topics covered during the presentation.
