Modint webinar sourcing: opportunities in the Balkans

09 december
9 december 2022
10:30 tot 12:00

MODINT will organize a webinar on sourcing and production potential in three Balkan countries: North Macedonia, Kosovo, and Albania.
In recent months MODINT gets more and more questions on alternatives in nearby sourcing. Production in Turkey is becoming expensive and supply chain problems in China cause buyers to look for alternative production countries nearby European Union. The webinar will be moderated by Antonio F. Barberi Ettaro.

From each country a Dutch textile company or a local expert will share their experience in these countries. We cooperate as well with Mr. Alfred Schönbeck, garment Engineer and Consultant with an experience of working in the textile sector in Macedonia and Kosovo as well as Mr. Arno Scheidmann, owner of Karma Bella BV , operating in North Macedonia. More information or interest in participating please contact Antonio F. Barberi Ettaro.
