«We have high hopes for the CPM exhibition this season. Especially considering the data on the growth of Italian imports of clothing and accessories in the period from January to June 2017 by 31.2% compared to the same period last year, which amounted to 511.7 million euros and confirmed Italy's position in second place among the main suppliers of the market. The Russian market is again showing an increase in enthusiasm for Made in Italy products, as well as an increase in the number of trading platforms. That is why it is so important for us to constantly monitor the market and invite the most promising Russian partners to the exhibition CPM, in whose stores the Italian product should be presented.
