“I am very pleased that the FE General Meeting has appointed me again to the position of Board Vice-President. It is a sign of trust placed in me by our professional community. For the next two years I will be able to represent the Polish chemical industry and have an important say on issues related to the European fertilizer industry and thus actively influence the processes of key importance for that sector of the economy,” said Marek Kapłucha, Vice-President of the Grupa Azoty Management Board.
“I am happy to be able to continue my work for such an important organisation, important not only to Grupa Azoty, but to the entire fertilizer industry in Poland. Thanks to our representation on the Fertilizers Europe Board, we will not only participate in the decision-making process concerning the European fertilizer market, but will also be able to actively cooperate in conceptual work with other FE member companies,” said Andrzej Skolmowski, Vice-President of the Grupa Azoty Management Board.
One of the key roles of FE is to liaise with the European Commission in areas such as trade protection and anti-dumping duty policy. Grupa Azoty will continue to actively lead and participate in the work related to agriculture, environmental protection, trade and technology sharing.
