The Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) participated in the recently held business mission ‘Italy to Vietnam 2014’, to meet Vietnamese textile manufacturers and promote Italian textile machineries and training centers in Vietnam.

The business mission was promoted by Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and was organized by Italian Trade Agency.

During the business mission, ACIMIT senior management was able to ascertain the strong focus of Vietnamese textile sector on maximizing energy savings during production, while reducing pollution. The Vietnamese textile sector also expressed its interest in undertaking training from Italian textile machinery manufacturers.

ACIMIT’s president Raffaella Carabelli said, “Vietnam represents one of the most promising markets of the future for our companies. The local authorities have invested in the textile and garments industry, and are very much aware of the added value that Italian technology can bring to their production. The meetings held over the past few days with local counterparts confirm this.”

“We believe that Italian machinery manufacturers can strengthen their partnership with Vietnam’s local textile producers. The ACIMIT “Sustainable Technologies” project ensures that manufacturers using our machinery solutions will be rewarded with energy savings and industry leading, advanced environmentally friendly technology,” she added.

Rafaella said, “The creation of a technology training center is a concrete possibility, and will provide a further stimulus towards developing business opportunities between Italy and Vietnam in the textile industry.”

Vietnam’s textile sector is already a major buyer of Italian textile machine technology among Asian markets. Over the first six months of 2014, Italy exported €14 million worth of textile machinery to Vietnam (+159 per cent over the same period for 2013), confirming the growth trend in recent few years, according to reports.

ACIMIT is a private non-profit making body and its main purpose consists in promoting the Italian textile machinery sector throughout the world. (GK)
