—VCI Is On A Roll “Germany's chemical industry association revels in the good times and is working to keep them going” AS THE GERMAN Chemical Industry Association (VCI) sees it, its constituency has worked for and achieved a clear competitive global advantage. But under the leadership of recently appointed Director General Utz Tillmann, VCI is concerned about the chemical industry in Germany remaining competitive in the future. At VCI's annual summer press conference, Ulrich Lehner, VCI president, pointed out that since the start of an upswing for the industry in 2003, the German chemical industry has seen average annual growth above 4%—more than the counterpart industries of the U.S., Japan, or other European Union countries.
