The Automotive Day, the most important annual event in the Greater Region for top professionals in the automotive sector, took place on Thursday, 6 November in Bascharage. The event brought together 90 participants from Luxembourg, France and Germany to exchange on trends, challenges and opportunities related to the theme ‘Green Automotive Future’.

After a welcome address by François Bausch, Minister for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure, participants had the opportunity to listen to experts on Green Automotive Future and CO² reduction during different presentations and a round table discussion. Around 40 individual bilateral meetings were organised within the framework of the B2B Matchmaking session for participants in search of new technology and business partners. Participants also had the opportunity to visit two Luxembourg-based automotive companies, Delphi and Raval.
