“The implementation of solutions is also influenced by legislative authorities. Membership in the VATM makes it easier for us to understand these dependencies. At the same time we would like to utilize our knowledge to set new impulses in the VATM association,” Giovanni Ambrogio expressed his pleasure with the cooperation.
