Optimism at Japan show

An open letter to non-EFTTA members
EFTTA CEO Jean-Claude Bel writes: How would you react if your company was made to stop trading? If the business you had built up, perhaps over many years, was threatened with such force that it would cease to exist? I am sure you would fight tooth and nail to save it, spend whatever you could afford to fend off the outside influences that threatened it. And if other companies that you relied on for trade were similarly at risk, surely you would not hesitate to join forces with them to save your livelihoods?
