We are happy to announce that we, Continental, are one of the partners of the Timiș County Strategy and Economic Cooperation Council lauched in Timisoara.
The Timiș County Strategy and Economic Cooperation Council is a structure established by the Timiș County Council aiming to strengthen the county's economic and social strategy for the next seven years. The president of the Timiș County Council, the mayors of Timisoara and Lugoj, representatives of universities, the business landscape, as well as representatives from the consulates are all part of The Council (CSCE). The CSCE was launched on February 11th. At the event, Dr. Christian von Albrichsfeld, Head of Country Continental Romania, spoke about the importance of a structured and aligned collaboration of all parties involved in the project, so that the county develops to the potential it has from an economic point of view.
"When Continental came here, over 20 years ago, it needed a strong collaboration with the authorities. Through the investments made and the jobs created, the company contributed to the development of Timisoara and of the entire county. It would not have managed to become a pillar of the automotive industry in Romania without a very good collaboration with the authorities, universities and other institutions of strategic importance. We work, study and live in Timisoara. It is vital to find opportunities to work together, to share our experience, to gather information that helps us develop together in a synchronized and structured way, regardless of the area of activity. When everyone understands the needs of others, when we work together for a common goal and take steps in the same direction together, the results appear faster, bring greater benefits and influence in a positive way the whole community," he said.
