EIMA, 42nd edition opened by a political conference
crowded pavilions from early morning in the EIMA International opening day, the exhibition of agricultural machinery being held in Bologna 9 to 13 November, which was inaugurated Michele Scannavini, President ICE Agency; David Conte, commissioner of the City of Bologna; Franco Boni, President of BolognaFiere; Massimo Goldoni, president FederUnacoma.
Now in its 42nd edition, the festival presents itself to the public with over one hundred thematic and with a packed schedule of meetings focusing on salient issues of the economy and mechanization. The innovation in the primary sector represents a priority for the development of global economies, but it must be supported with policy interventions tailored to the different characteristics and needs of the territories and rural communities.
From the industrial programming to research, through technical regulations, the agro-industrial sector therefore requires a broad approach, which sees the involvement of all actors in the supply chain. These are precisely the issues that are addressed today during the conference entitled "Agriculture machinery: a new European agenda", promoted by FederUnacoma in collaboration with CEMA, the association of European manufacturers of agricultural machinery, and Agrievolution the international body that brings together the major producing countries. The meeting, organized with the aim of promoting the confrontation between entrepreneurs, institutions and political world, with the participation of Paolo De Castro, member of the Agriculture Committee of the European Parliament; Elisabetta Gardini, member of the Environment Committee of the European Parliament; Aldo Longo, Director-General for Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Commission; Barbara Bonvissuto, the Directorate General "Grow" the European Commission; Richard Markwell, president of CEMA; Massimo Goldoni, president FederUnacoma Pekka Pesonen, Secretary General of COPA-COGECA; Klaus Pentzlin president of Ceettar; Alice Cerutti, Vice Ceja. I like to shed light on the strategies to relaunch a sector that in 2015 recorded a significant decrease in sales (-6%) and should not see a turnaround until the end of 2017. There will also be an introduction by Michele Scannavini, president of the ICE, who will speak on the role that Europe can play in the new global scenario.
