  3. Share your input: Share your insights and needs, discuss your challenges and inform FTA about your feedback. 

During this NCG, members will recieve an update on news from FTA, including its new branding under 'amfori', information about the new Chair 2018 and Swedish WG participation 2018. The meeting will also present the results of a research study on sustainability conducted by Prof. Niklas Egels Zandén, Göteborgs Universitet – Handels högskolan Göteborg, along with insight into modern slavery and transparency. See the full agenda here
