Uzbekistan is one of the largest producers and exporters of cotton and its textile industry is a relevant driver for the national economy. Thanks to the raw material’s availability and low production costs the business conditions are favourable for the development of the local industry. The upgrading of installed equipment is considered a step to achieve this goal.
In 2016, Italian exports amounted to Euro15 million, increasing the 2015 figures by 16 per cent. Among the Italian machines most in demand by Uzbek textile companies are knitting machinery (62 per cent of the overall total) and spinning machinery (24 per cent). At CAITME Italian exhibitors will show the most advanced technology applied to the textile sector, offering proper solutions in terms of efficiency, costs saving and sustainability.
