ACIMIT Mission to Indonesia
ACIMIT, the Italian umbrella association of textile machinery manufacturers will participate from May 6 -8, 2013 in a mission called “Sistema Italia” to Indonesia
The mission is promoted by the Italian Ministries of Economic Development and Foreign Affairs, and organised by ICE, the Italian Trade Promotion Agency promoting the internationalisation of Italian businesses abroad. It will include B2B meetings and seminars, and is particularly relevant for Italy’s textile machinery sector as Indonesia’s textile industry has been growing in recent years, also thanks to government’s assistance to re-launch the sector as around 75 % of existing machinery has been in operation for more than 10 years and around 670 textile manufacturers took advantage of this programme during 2007 – 2011 thus the demand for textile machinery has been growing. Italian textile machinery shipped to Indonesia achieved in 2012 EUR 38 million (plus 30 %) and Indonesia ranks after China, India and Bangladesh. Indonesia was mostly supplied from Italy with finishing machines (35 %) and weaving machines (32 %) and became one of the fastest growing markets for Italian textile machinery manufacturers. The mission seeks to accentuate these ties.
