The meeting and consultation took place in the framework of the High Level Forum on Sustainable Construction and in the follow up of the third meeting of the European Commission TG-5.

Furthermore, Cerame-Unie identified priority export markets for ceramic construction sectors and products individually and demonstrated where further export potential exists if tariffs and technical barriers to trade are removed.
