BIR World Recycling Convention & Exhibition in Berlin (29 May – 1 June 2016)

International Trade Council:

Important presentations on TTIP and Theft reduction from shipments

Dear BIR Member, dear Convention Participant,
 
Attending the plenary session of the International Trade Council is a must! Under the chairmanship of Michael Lion (Everwell Resources Ltd, China), the ITC will provide a platform for important issues affecting the international recycling business:
 
“TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership): Stakes and state of play” by Dr. Christian Bluth, Bertelsmann Foundation
The Bertelsmann Foundation (German: Bertelsmann Stiftung) is the largest private operating non-profit foundation in Germany. It is an operating foundation, rather than a funding organization, which considers itself an engine of reform and a   promoter of social change toward a sustainable society. It aims to identify social challenges and problems early on and to develop and implement model solutions. Its programme carries out think-tanking activities and policy consultancy  which focus on the future of the European Union and its relations with neighbouring regions.
