Dear Readers, 

Since the last edition of our newsletter, the global market is now facing new and difficult trials. Although the pandemic is still far from over, the most critical phase seems to have been overcome.

The post-pandemic economy must address different issues. The abilities of individual countries to re-establish and create new routes for international trade has been put to the test. A new wave of regionalism has also emerged. 

In addition, this frail path to recovery has been challenged by geo-political tensions in Eastern Europe and Asia, and namely by the many economic implications of the current situation in Ukraine. 

Inflation, partly a consequence of the recovery plans across the globe, has had negative effects on this recovery. The concerns about the supply chain, as well as the high cost in inter-continental logistics, are not yet solved.
The need to secure a supply chain and a continuous presence in competitive markets have forced companies to adapt through the establishment of smart capabilities and the relocation of partial production of services. Nearshoring has become a most pressing consideration in terms of manufacturing. 

We continue to witness the trend towards a more intense integration within the North American market. This trend implies new business opportunities for manufacturers that are now able to supply products previously acquired in more distant areas. 

Technology is at the centre of the integration of the North American manufacturing industry. Technology allows companies to enhance production capabilities and to address new requirements, challenges, and opportunities, such as location, availability, environmental and labour concerns, etc. 
2022 has also witnessed the beginning of a new and intense wave of activities to interact with different economic actors through trade shows, conferences, and summits both in person and virtually. 

The trade events taking place in Italy in 2022 include The Innovation Alliance (Ipack Ima, Green Plast, Intra Logistica, Print4All), Macfrut, Lamiera, Autopromotec, Metef Foundeq, Bimu, Xylexpo, Marmomacc, Tecna, Eima, SIMEI, and Interpoma. Next, events within North America include: Fitma, WMS, Expo Manufactura, Castexpo, Top Glass, Plastimagen, Fabtech (Canada, Mexico, USA editions), Glasstech, IMTS, Glassbuild America, Packexpo.
In 2022 Machines Italia is also hosting several Italian technology solution providers at various trade shows such as Expo Pack Mexico, Fundiexpo Mexico, PackExpo USA, CIHAC Mexico. 

We will also be hosting entrepreneurial delegation visits to Italian shows throughout the year.

My colleagues and I, at the Italian Trade Commission North American offices, hope to engage with you in our activities and invite you to visit our Machines Italia site to learn more about Italian technology and our upcoming events.
