A conversation with: VANNIA GAVA, VANNIA GAVA, UNDERSECRETARY OF STATE FOR ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION

According to preliminary figures released by Confindustria Moda, the national federation that brings together textiles, fashion and accessories, the turnover in the industry grew by 22.2% reaching €91.7 billion, during last year. Although the 6.4% still missing to hit pre-Covid levels back, the fashion industry has been able to reorganize itself by focusing on digitalization and environment awareness. And this last one, is exactly the topic at the center of a broader strategy that sees companies and Government together. 

"Environmental sustainability topics have a daily importance and involve all areas without exception," explained Vannia Gava, Undersecretary of State for Ecological Transition, "In detail, fashion represents a very important sector for the Country. Companies in the sector have done a great effort in this direction and it is our firm intention to support them, accompanying them where necessary, in order to achieve concrete objectives. I'm proud as an Italian and as a representative of the Government to be here at White and to support an industry that takes first place in Europe and represents 66,000 companies. I also think that it is necessary to be close to those believing in our Country and those who invest in order to achieve, together, the important objectives that we have in front of us".
