The CEOP

The purpose of this committee is to foster cooperation and coordinate issues of common interest. It is also a way for businesses to strengthen their relationship with civilians, municipal and economic stakeholders in the industry. In accordance with modern management principles, the CEOP aims to provide its customers with high-quality products and services while ensuring the protection of the environment. The CEOP currently has about twenty active members (manufacturing businesses consisting of at least five employees) and associated members (service businesses consisting of at least five employees).
