“Cecot joins the Positive Industry movement launched by AMEC because we share the DNA of its manifesto: acknowledging industry as one of the most powerful agents of social and economic transformation.
We are fully aware of the contribution of industry to a country’s economic, social and cultural development. Our organisation’s history is closely linked to the industrial revolution that began in the textile sector in the Vallés region, currently southern Europe’s most industrialised region, and which provided major social advances.
In recent years, the tertiarisation of our economy and high dependence on specific sectors have left us with a less solid and diversified economy. The pandemic brought about by COVID-19 has highlighted the risk that this entails, and now is the time to become aware and bring the need to foster industrial policies that enable us to transform our production model back to the core of the debate.
With initiatives such as Positive Industry, we at Cecot reiterate our commitment to a digital, committed and sustainable industry that enables us to be more competitive and creates higher quality jobs in order to ultimately generate greater well-being and social cohesion.”
