Currently, as we experience the world’s economy being seriously impacted by COVID-19, I am more confident than ever about the significant role of UFI and importance of the exhibitions it supports. It will be an extraordinary honour to join with the UFI leadership in the coming years in moving this remarkable industry forward into a new era.”, says Monica Lee-Müller.
