On the first quarter reports, Raffaella Carabelli, President of ACIMIT commented, “The ACIMIT survey has certainly highlighted a positive moment, which is also a consequence of what was witnessed at the last edition of ITMA, held in Milan last November. However for the foreign market, global economic situation is not too much positive.”
