The general meeting of Ucima (Italian Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Association) has elected the members of the Board who will work together with President Enrico Aureli and Vice-Presidents Andrea Malagoli and Luciano Sottile to head the association.
Over the next few days the Italian automatic packaging machinery manufacturers will be promoting Italian innovation at three major trade fairs in Mexico, Russia and Thailand.
In the first three months of this year, turnover in the Italian market grew by +6.5%, with orders up by +9.9%. Export sales have also grown by 13%, following the relatively low growth of 3% in the last two quarters of 2016.
The country pavilion coordinated by UCIMA and the Italian Trade Agency ICE will host Italian packaging technology in Vietnam from 21 to 23 March.
