Italian textile machinery delegation to visit Iran
Oct '15
To consolidate its presence in the Iranian textile industry, Italian textile machinery association – ACIMIT is participating in an Italian trade mission to Iran in late November.

This follows from the agreement reached in July on nuclear talks between P5+1 countries and Iran which lifted the sanctions, thereby opening the door to a resumption in investments in textile technology by Iran.

“To seize these new opportunities, ACIMIT, will participate in the Italian trade mission promoted by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and organised by the Italian Trade Agency.

“In 2014, flow of exports of textile machinery to Iran resumed, but not with the same intensity as prior to application of international sanctions,” Raffaella Carabelli, president of ACIMIT said.

“In 2004, Iran was actually the fourth largest market for Italian exports from the textile sector and after years of complete stagnation, in 2014 exports to Iran returned to growth figures,” Carabelli noted.

“Now's the time to return to invest our energies on the Iranian market and recover lost time, starting with the business mission in late November,” she observed.

ACIMIT has also planned a road show in 2016, with the aim of promoting Italian textile technology in Iran's major textile producing areas. (AR)
