Mr Jean de Jaegher, deputy chairman of Marzotto and a past president of Euratex, has expressed his regret that the EU failed to provide an agenda for future accession talks with Turkey. In June 2002, Filip Libeert, who succeeded Mr de Jaegher as president of Euratex, wrote to Romano Prodi, president of the European Commission, to express Euratex's full support for Turkey's candidacy.
