Export mercati emergenti

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 giugno 2014

SACE, il gruppo assicurativo-finanziario che sostiene la crescita e la competitività delle aziende italiane, ha presentato oggi REthink, il Rapporto con le previsioni sui trend dell’export italiano per il 2014-2017, con un focus dedicato al tessuto imprenditoriale del Nord Est.
“Sono molto lieto di presenziare a quest’importante evento, di incontro e confronto con le imprese, nel cuore del Triveneto, una delle aree italiane più orientate ai mercati internazionali – ha dichiarato il presidente di SACE, Giovanni Castellaneta, in apertura dei lavori -. I nostri studi lo confermano: grazie a un’elevata capacità di riadattamento, innovazione e specializzazione, le imprese del Nord Est hanno saputo anticipare i tempi e reagire alle difficoltà congiunturali, intercettando le migliori opportunità al di fuori dell’area euro e realizzando, solo nel 2013, 70 miliardi di export”.“Questo dinamismo trova pieno riscontro anche nell’operatività della nostra Sede di Venezia, che segue tutte le imprese del Triveneto – ha spiegato Simonetta Acri, direttore Rete Italia di SACE -. Da qui, anche attraverso i nostri presidi a Padova, Verona, Pordenone e Trento, solo nell’ultimo anno abbiamo servito più di 3 mila imprese, in prevalenza Pmi, per oltre 5 miliardi di euro di operazioni assicurate”.
Nel 2013 nel Triveneto hanno registrato le migliori performance i settori di punta dell’export Made in Italy: le tecnologie industriali ma anche i beni di consumo, che da soli hanno sfiorato il valore di 40 miliardi di euro di esportazioni, forti dell’indiscutibile appeal che esercitano sui mercati emergenti.La filiera agroalimentare, ad esempio, ha messo a segno un tasso di crescita dell’export del 5,7%; i gioielli e mobili del 3,1% (tasso che diventa a due cifre nei mercati emergenti, raggiungendo il 15% nei mercati mediorientali); il settore moda, in aumento del 3,1% a livello globale, è balzato al 19% nel Far East. Anche le tecnologie industriali hanno realizzato performance positive all’estero, trainate dalla meccanica strumentale, che da sola ha generato 15 miliardi di euro di export (+2,1% rispetto all’anno precedente) e dalle apparecchiature elettriche (+5,4%) che trovano nella “Inox Valley” un territorio di eccellenza transfrontaliero. Interessanti prospettive sono offerte anche da altri distretti: spiccano le performance dell’occhialeria di Belluno, della concia di Arzignano e dei vini di Conegliano e Valdobbiena e del Veronese.Rilevazioni che trovano conferma nel Rapporto di SACE, che inserisce quasi tutti questi comparti nella classifica Top Sector, ovvero la classifica dei settori di punta per l’export italiano nei prossimi quattro anni (2014-2017): l’agroalimentare, best performer a livello nazionale, con previsioni di crescita dell’export all’8,9%, seguito dalla meccanica strumentale (8,5%) e, qualche gradino più in basso, dal tessile e abbigliamento (7%). Mentre i migliori margini di crescita per l’export di questi settori proverranno dai mercati emergenti: non solo i Brics, ma anche diverse destinazioni meno battute (come Arabia Saudita, Angola, Cile, Filippine e Tailandia) senza dimenticare i mercati avanzati già acquisiti (come Canada e Francia).

Windforce trade fair and conference draw to a successful close

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 giugno 2014

Bremen-rathaus-dom-buergerschaftBremen, Windforce 2014, the central event of the offshore wind industry, draws to a close today on a very positive note. Over three full days, the 14 topic sessions of the conference brought together over 500 national and international experts. At the WINDFORCE trade fair running in parallel, 253 companies exhibited components, services and projects across the entire value creation chain. “After the successful start made by the trade fair two years ago, we’re delighted that this year we were able to welcome around 5,000 visitors from the industry from both Germany and overseas, despite the difficult market environment”, explains Jens Eckhoff, managing director of Offshore Wind Messe & Veranstaltungs GmbH. “The industry can now look more optimistically towards the future as it’s already shown that it can not only plan projects, but it can also construct them”, adds Ronny Meyer, managing director of WAB, the wind energy agency. “In spite of the difficult framework conditions, the trade fair has developed into one of the industry’s most important meeting places”, says Christian Schnibbe, head of communications at wpd AG. Dr Benjamin Vordemfelde, managing director of SeaRenergy Offshore Holding GmbH from Hamburg, confirms this view: The trade fair brings together all the industry’s key players. We’ve held very productive talks here”. The programme for WINDFORCE 2014 also came in for much praise: not only did it merge a trade fair and conference under one roof in Bremen and include events such as flights over the North Sea, a party and the WINDFORCE Dinner, it also provided a unique opportunity for networking. “Here we’re able to make contacts and reach our target groups”, says Dirk Jan Hummel of the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce in Groningen. The participants of the joint stand he manned belong to Northern Netherlands Offshore Wind (NNOW), a supplier cluster engaged in the offshore wind industry. In addition to the trade fair, the conference also showed its international focus. Comprehensive session blocks were devoted to international markets and projects. Here, as well as in the inaugural talks and the panel discussion on the Renewable Energies Act, calls were made for reliable framework conditions for offshore projects. “What we need is a long-term, political vision and European expansion targets until 2030”, said Andrew Garrad, president of the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), and added: “Cost reduction is feasible and we can celebrate the successes we’ve had to date. If we have reliable framework conditions and clear guidelines for the offshore industry, the financing of offshore projects is no problem whatsoever”. The next offshore trade fair takes place in Bremen from 7 to 9 June, 2016. Next year the organisers will be extending an invitation to attend the conference that will be taking place from 9 to 11 June, 2015.
For ten years the WINDFORCE offshore conference has been held in Bremerhaven. Since 2012, WINDFORCE has been expanded to include Germany’s only offshore trade fair, which is organised every two years in conjunction with the conference. WINDFORCE 2015 from 9 to 11 June 2015, conference in Bremerhaven, WINDFORCE 2016 from 7 to 9 June 2016, trade fair and conference in Bremen.

At WJC forum in Jerusalem, Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri speaks out against kidnappings

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 giugno 2014

kidnappingsJERUSALEM – At a meeting hosted by the World Jewish Congress-Israel and the Israel Council on Foreign Relations (ICFR) in Jerusalem today, Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri spoke of his cordial feelings toward Jews and the Jewish state. Macri, who is a candidate in the forthcoming Argentine presidential elections, stressed the important contribution of Jews in Argentina. He emphasized his belief that Argentina had much to learn from Israel as a “start-up nation” and that “there are many opportunities for cooperation between our two countries.” Macri expressed his commitment to trying to find the perpetrators of the attacks against the Israeli embassy in 1992 and the Jewish community in 1994, but noted that “it will not be an easy task, as twenty years have passed.” Responding to a question from the press regarding the recent abduction of three Israeli teenagers, Macri, who himself had been the victim of a kidnapping in 1991 and had been held in captivity for 14 days, declared: “It is the most perverse situation you can find yourself in.” Recalling that his sister, too, had once been kidnapped, he went on to say: “I do not know if it is worse for the victim or the family. Unfortunately, I have experienced it from both sides. Israeli suffering has to be understood. From afar, it is easy to give advice but you have to be in Israel to really understand the situation.” Both Macri and his sister had been released after their father paid out millions of dollars in ransom.
Macri said he was committed to continue fighting terrorism and that his party had voted against signing the memorandum of understanding with Iran signed last year to probe the 1994 AMIA bombing. If elected, he said, he would do everything possible to have it rescinded. The World Jewish Congress (WJC) is the international organization representing Jewish communities in 100 countries to governments, parliaments and international organizations. The Jerusalem-based Israel Council on Foreign Relations (ICFR) is devoted to the study and debate of foreign policy, with special emphasis on Israeli and Jewish concerns. The ICFR functions under the auspices of the World Jewish Congress. (kidnappings)
