Marc Van Pelt控制工程网版权所有, vice-president, Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Operations and chairman, Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Steering Committee, also supported the meeting.

Van Pelt praised the extension of the former Dutch committee's role. He said, "The Dutch group has grown consistently since its launch in 1999, and the expanded committee now has an impressive membership of 16 companies with an additional six honorary end-user and engineering contractor members. It made perfect sense to expand the responsibilities of this successful group to include Belgium and Luxembourg. The participation of our end-user members in the committee, and its end user events, are a valuable asset to both the group itself and to all prospective users of FOUNDATION fieldbus attending the seminars," he continued. "This beneficial arrangement is also being mirrored in other EMEA marketing committees."

With the support of the Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Executive Advisory Council and Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Steering Committee, the FFBeneluxMC will play an important role in promoting the primary value propositions of FOUNDATION technology, which include business integrity; business intelligence; and openwww.cechina.cn, scalable integration of information across process manufacturing plants.

They will also have the opportunity to discuss their own applications with fieldbus experts and suppliers of systems and devices.
