The article speculates the benefit to the furniture industry from improved access to European policymakers if the European Commission approves the introduction of a pan-European forum for the furniture industry at a conference next month. A forum would mark a higher profile for the furniture industry in the European Union, following the example of a similar forum for the clothing and textiles industry in 2003. If the forum go ahead, the Great Britain government will be expected to make a similar commitment in the home market.
