ACEA celebrates its 25th anniversary
On 21 January 2016, the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) hosted a reception in Brussels on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.
After Secretary General Erik Jonnaert had welcomed all guests, ACEA’s newly-elected President Dieter Zetsche took the stage. In his speech, Dr Zetsche set out the four themes that will top ACEA’s agenda in years to come. “We want to make mobility cleaner, smarter, safer and even more customer-focused,” Zetsche asserted. Finally, the European Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc, shared her views on innovation in Europe’s automobile industry – stressing the role of digitalisation in addressing tomorrow’s mobility challenges.
Ahead of the anniversary celebration, ACEA President Dieter Zetsche spoke with CLEPA Peresident Roberto Vavassori at the press conference in the afternoon and discussed joint efforts of automotive manufacturers and suppliers to drive growth, innovation and maintain Europe as a world leader in the automotive industry.
