Invest in Tuscany participated last week in Berlin at the 2018 edition of Innotrans. His staff was hosted in DITECFER stand and with the support of the Italian Trade Agency-ICE, eighteen meetings were held to present the regional rail and tram district and the services offered to investors by Invest in Tuscany. DITECFER’s stand was one of the key places of the national collective taking part in the 2018 edition of the fair, also hosting the visit of Minister Danilo Toninelli and over 130 b2b meetings.
As part of a regional agreement between DITECFER and Invest in Tuscany, and thanks to the support of ICE Berlin, some meetings were held with European companies with investment potential in Tuscany aimed at integrating the railway supply chain to make it stronger and more competitive. Among the companies meeting it is worth mentioning Continental, MTU, Mafex, Railpool and SHC, these are some of the key players who could give a significant contribution to strengthening the existing railway supply chain in the region.
As part of the PERES project DITECFER and Invest in Tuscany also met the Surface Transport Cluster of Quebec (Canada), with whom was reached an agreement for the signing of a MoU of collaboration in favor of their companies to enter their respective markets, exploiting the potential offered by the EU-Canada Free Trade Agreement. Meetings with the APTA-American Public Transportation Association and the REMSA-Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (USA) also go in this direction, in spite of the “Buy America Policy”, in search of possible integration of the supply chain from a win-win point of view.
