Brussels 16 June 2015 - Mr Daniel Gauthier, CEO Western Europe-Africa and Member of the Managing Board of HeidelbergCement, has been elected as President of CEMBUREAU for a two-year term at the Association's General Assembly held today in Oslo (Norway) after having completed his mandate of Vice-President over the last two years. Mr Gonçalo Salazar Leite (CEO Secil) has been elected as Vice President of CEMBUREAU for a two-year term.
On 14 November 2014, CEMBUREAU responded to a survey regarding the European Standardisation System (ESS). In its response, the Association highlighted the fact that, when elaborating a standard, the main priority should be the quality of standard, rather the time needed to prepare it.
Latest quarterly figures (Q1 2015) reveal some economic momentum across Member States as GDP growth gained speed in many EU Member States (MS). However, divergences in economic performances persisted and recovery from the cumulated GDP losses is still lagging behind in some of the MS that were most affected by the subdued economic cycle across the EU since Q4 2008.
