We roughly represent about 82% of the Indian converters in value terms, and our Association with ProPack is very old, and we continue to look forward to associating with the organizers in their future shows as well.”
Alessandro Liberatori, Trade Commissioner, Italian Trade Agency said, " I would like to thank Informa Markets for the opportunity to be a part of this event and would also like to congratulate them for the commendable job done in bringing the event to this fruitful outcome. As the Trade Commissioner of the Embassy of Italy, and as a Governmental agency, it is one of our responsibilities to support businesses abroad, and packaging is an imperative part of every industry, be it necessities to luxury. The pandemic also brought out the importance of packaging and its consequence on health and hygiene. The Italian industry turned over more than the U.S. $8.2 billion in 2021 in packaging, with a high propensity to export. Also, over 50% of all packaging and wrapping machines in the world are either Italian or German. Hence our Trade Commission, in partnership with the Packaging Association, has organized a special Italian Pavilion with the top eight manufacturers of packaging in Italy. We thank the organizers for giving us this opportunity to showcase the best in Italian packaging to India.
