MACHINES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PLASTIC AND RUBBER ARE PRESENTED IN CASABLANCA.
A country that is growing, even in times of crisis. This is Morocco, which has recorded economic growth for the last 5 years, despite the global decline, and is predicted to record a growth of 3.3% for 2013. The Italian entrepreneurs, operating in the sector of machines for the manufacture of plastic and rubber materials, aim at this market, which is characterised by good political, economic and social stability; this is a unique opportunity for people to get to know the best products Made in Italy in this industry.
This mission, which is organised by Ice Agenzia in collaboration with Assocomaplast, is part of the projects organised by the operating agreement between the Ministry of Economic Development, Ice and Assocomaplast for 2013 and 2014, especially for the sector of machines for the manufacture of plastic and rubber materials.
The mission includes a seminar / workshop that will take place in Casablanca on 21st of next January, during which the latest innovations, the most advanced and innovative technologies and the best products Made in Italy of the sector will be presented to potential partners and local clients. Apart from visits to some Moroccan company sites, B2B meetings will also be organised.
Enterprises that already have experience in the Moroccan market, as well as enterprises that are facing this experience for the first time, will be participating.
It is also because this is a market of prime focus for Italian enterprises, due to the stability of the country, and is also a reference point for commercial strategies aimed at both other North African countries and Central-East African countries.
Moreover, one has to bear in mind that, historically speaking, the sector of products Made in Italy has had a significant position in North Africa compared to the direct German and French competition, as well as the Asian competition that is less avant-garde but always more aggressive in terms of prices.
Last but not least, one has to bear in mind the fact that the local entrepreneurial system has shown an interest in transformer industry support on several occasions, both in terms of technician training and the modernisation of installations.
It is in this way that the Italian industry, which knows how to combine technological innovation with the stability of tradition, offers the best in flexographic printers, injection machines, extruders and extraction lines, machines for blow moulding, thermoforming machines, various types of press, and so on; all of which are installations with high technological content and always less power consumption.
Moreover, the quality of the sector can also be seen through the run of the most recent data: according to the processing of Assocomaplast (the national association that brings together around 160 constructors of machines, tools and moulds for plastic and rubber materials) of the data, Istat shows a certain weakness in imports and a relative resistance to exports in the sector.
The decrease in imports is evidence of a home market that is too tired to pick itself up, while exports show that quality is rewarded in those markets that were less affected by the crisis.
Moreover, the enterprises of the sector are optimistic about the next few months in terms of invoicing and production, even under the light of major consistencies in the orders portfolio recorded last July, both with respect to June and compared to the level of July 2012, above all regarding exports.
