I am proud to belong to this industry, I always believed that through this medium we positioned the sector and gave it the value it deserves. Meeting again after four years, with this amount of machinery and demonstrating the investment of the sector, marks the strength of this industry. The textile industry is worth it and we must defend it against all odds”.

On his part, the President of Messe Frankfurt Argentina, Fernando Gorbarán, stated: “After four years, we meet again at Emitex, Simatex and Confemaq. It is an industry that provides added value to the country, which is transcendental when it comes to generating jobs, which are so needed.

We invite you to visit the fair to meet again with friends, customers, colleagues and live again this industry”.

On his part, the President of CAME, Alfredo González, took up the words of Andrea Lippi and remarked: “All ventures in Argentina begin with a dream, a project and its execution. The fact that 90% of the exhibiting companies are from national industry shows the importance of generating genuine work that spreads throughout the interior of the country. It is gratifying for us to be able to support all the companies that are here and the colleague chambers".

On his turn, the President of the Pro Tejer Foundation, Luciano Galfione, expressed: “The textile industry is one of the most federal industries of Argentina, with a presence in 17 provinces. For us, it is a great joy to get back together and with good news: this is one of the years of greatest investment; in the first three months of 2022 more than 60 million dollars in capital goods have already been exported. This year is going to be a record for machine exports, which means more technology, more productivity, better products, more offers, and more quality Argentine work for our young people and business professionals, and this should fill us with pride. Let’s defend our industry”.
