    The uncertainty of the evolution of the worldwide economic situation makes it impossible to confidently forecast growth in the short and medium term. It is quite probable that for at least another two years consumption and investment will be at a standstill, while the big sufferers (states and businesses) will be able to balance out, with difficulties, their budgets.

It will be necessary, perhaps essential, to promote technological research and development in the fields of energy saving and alternative energy. Mutual effort and commitment, on behalf of all the trade professionals, big and small, are required in this direction. Only by these means will it be possible to overcome, with relative calm, the difficult moments in the next biennium and be prepared for a more vast and profitable glass products market for everyone in 2012. We all are working in this direction inside the companies which are part of the Fenzi group.
