"FederUnacoma's sphere of activity includes the political context," said newly-appointed President Mariateresa Maschio, "and the economic context, in which our sector is set. Never as in this phase has the scenario in which companies find themselves operating appeared so complex and evolving, and managing complexity is the task of a representative system like ours. I strongly believe in the value of associationism and will do my best to adequately represent our industry".
