The EIMA Agrimach review – staged in New Delhi through Italian-Indian cooperation – was an ideal platform for Italian agricultural machinery manufacturers looking to develop business relations in the great South Asian nation. The event also marked the crossroads of trade among countries in Asia, the Far East as well as Africa. Since the first edition of the event in 2009, EIMA Agrimach has drawn delegations from all these countries, from Iran to Kurdistan and from South Korea to Kenya, all in need of acquiring economical and easily maintained agricultural machinery and equipment and, on the other hand, requiring knowledge of the specific technologies for the production of rice and other cultivations typical of Asian and African lands and climate. Coming for the edition held last December, organized by the Italian Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Federation, FederUnacoma, and the Italian Trade Agency ICE, were official delegations from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. Also present, thanks to an initiative by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, FICCI, and UNIDO, were African delegations, including those from Morocco, Algeria and Egypt to confirm the international calibration of the exposition and the strategic location of the New Delhi event. International cooperation has, moreover, been one of the strong points for EIMA Agrimach, as underscored by the program of conferences, many of them focused on analyses of mechanization requirements and opportunities for cooperation among a number of countries. One of the conferences held in this setting was named, Transforming Agriculture Through Mechanization, set up by FICCI and FederUnacoma in cooperation with the Indian Ministry of Agriculture and the Indian Council of Agricultural Research with the partnership and support of the German Agribusiness Alliance and the Italian Trade Agency ICE. Discussion revolved around international best practices for the spread of mechanization. During the work of the conference, Marco Pezzini, the FederUnacoma representative for European Union policy, described the federation’s guidelines for the Indian, Egyptian and Sub-Saharan markets and Fabio Ricci, responsible for the federation’s foreign policy, spoke of the work of FederUnacoma for dealing with mechanization demand, especially in the developing nations, and for adapting technical features of machinery and equipment to meet the requirements of various farming models.
