"China International Textile Machinery Exhibition & ITMA Asia Exhibition" was held on June 22-26 in Shanghai in which 110 Italian textile machinery manufacturers and exhibitors set up an Italian National Pavilion.

President of the Italian Textile Machinery Industry Association Sandro Salmoiraghi said that the exhibitors are the best companies from within the Italian textile machinery industry. Italian textile machinery industry employs about 14,000 people.

Exports account for nearly 80 percent of total industrial revenue, of which, half are from Asia. 2009 turnover of Italian textile machinery industry was around 1.4 billion euros.
