Italy showcases its strength in technologies

TO stress its less-known strength in advanced technologies, Italy introduced 26 manufacturing companies in Shanghai yesterday with the host of an exhibition.

“While in long history Chinese people take Italy as the country rife with delicacy and arts, we in fact have large amount of manufacturing trades with China, and expect further development,” said Claudio Pasqualucci, Italy’s trade commissioner for Shanghai.

The export value from Italy to China totaled nearly US$18 billion last year, of which mechanical manufacturing goods took up 70 percent, Pasqualucci said.

The nation also prides itself on automobile components which nowadays are used in two thirds of cars in China, said Roberto Pagani, Italy’s councilor for science and technology in Shanghai.

The two-day show called YiTech Exhibition is expected to enhance Italy’s manufacturers’ penetration in the Chinese market.

Sara Corvino, a member at the Association of Italian Academics in China which organized the exhibition, said the exhibition “helps them to attract more local talents as it let the Chinese learn better about Italy’s manufacturing industry.”

The exhibition takes place at Consulate General of the Republic of Italy in Shanghai from Wednesday to Thursday, presenting heavy machinery component builders such as Comau, Fluid-o-Tech, Gefran and car parts makers such as Pirelli and Magneti Marelli. Most of the companies have production in China.

After the Shanghai’s presentation, the show will take round tours at universities across China from September to the end of the year.
