    On behalf of ACIMAC, the Associ-ation of the Italian Manufacturers of Machinery and Equipment for Ceramics, I would like to express my warmest greetings to the Chi-nese institutions and to the oper-ators of the Chinese ceramic in-dustry.

    Ceramics China represents a ma-jor chance for both Chinese and Italian companies to communicate and to strengthen their long-last-ing cooperation.

    The world ceramic market re-quires every day better quality tiles, for the production of which the best available technologies are needed. Italian technol-ogy for ceramics, world leader in terms of quality and inno-vation, will be represented in this years exhibition by several top companies, which will present their latest solutions and newest technologies.

    Confirming the support of our Association to the exhibition, we wish to all the exhibitors, visitors and organizers a very successful Ceramics China 2016.
