The Board of Directors of the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) today elected Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat S.p.A., as the association’s President for 2013. This will be his second consecutive term heading the association.
One of the highest priorities for ACEA next year will be to continue to push for a meaningful and supportive EU-wide industrial policy. In this context, ACEA will closely follow the process launched with CARS 2020 in order to ensure that the initiatives announced by the European Commission in this action plan are actually followed through.
Level playing fields must be the norm in international trade relations. In 2013, ACEA will therefore continue to make the case for fair and balanced trade agreements.
Also high on the agenda for ACEA next year will be the theme of sustainable mobility.
