Italy is the 8th largest manufacturer in the world, the 2nd largest manufacturer in Europe and the 3rd largest economy in the Eurozone, according to “Invest in Italy”.

Italy is a significant market for Australia. It is one of our largest trading markets in the European Union (EU) and in 2015-16 was our 16th largest merchandise trading partner globally. Two-way merchandise trade in 2015-16 was $6.7 billion, in Italy’s favour by a ratio of almost 8:1. Items such as wool, coal and beef dominated the mix of Australian exports. Major Australian imports from Italy included medicaments, passenger motor vehicles, and aircraft, spacecraft and parts.

Italy is Australia’s 18th largest inbound market by arrivals, and 17th by tourism expenditure. In the year ended 30 September 2016, there were 74,100 arrivals from Italy, an increase of 0.8 per cent on the previous year. Italian visitors to Australia spent $506 million in the year ended 30 September 2016 (with an average spend of $7,000 per visitor), an increase of 3.9 per cent on the previous year.

Italy is Australia’s 15th largest short-term destination. In the year ended 30 September 2016, there were 195,700 departures from Australia to Italy, an increase of 7.1 per cent on the previous year.

Italian investment in Australia is relatively low, reflecting Italy’s focus within the EU and Mediterranean area. However, here has been a recent welcome interest by some major Italian companies in investing in Australia, including as an entry point to the dynamic Indo-Pacific region and as a means of achieving more balanced investment portfolios. Total stock of investment from Italian companies in Australia in 2015 was worth over $2.7bn. Australian investment in Italy in 2015 was worth almost $4.5 billion. A number of Australian companies, including Lend Lease, Macquarie, Ansett Aviation Training, QBE and Cochlear, have business interests in Italy. Westfield is investing in continental Europe’s biggest shopping mall project in Milan which, when completed, will be worth around $2bn.


Italian brands at Fine Food Australia

Following successful involvement at previous editions, the Italian Trade Agency will again take part at the industry trade event Fine Food Australia, at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, from 12-15 September 2016.

Close to 30 companies from Italy will be hosted by the Italian Trade Agency at the Italian Pavilion, showcasing a range of products that include tomatoes, dairy products such as mozzarella and other cheeses, pasta, olive oil, wines, coffee, flour, vinegars and more. Visitors can also enjoy food tastings at the pavilion.

Italy is the sixth largest food supplier to Australia, with $697 million worth of imports last year and a market share of 4.6 per cent.

According to the Italian Trade Agency, Italian food products represent an important part of the Australian food market, as demonstrated by their increasing presence on supermarket shelves and the great number of Italian restaurants, pizzerias and cafés.

Products such as coffee, wine, pasta, tomato products, mineral waters, pastries and vinegar represent a large portion of the Italian products that are imported into Australia.

“The main aim of the Trade Agency in Australia is to increase people’s awareness about the quality and uniqueness of original Italian products by promoting authentic Italian products and encouraging people to experience real Italian food, culture and lifestyle,” said Antonietta Baccanari, director of the Italian Trade Agency, Sydney office.

As an Italian government agency, the Italian Trade Agency is committed to the endorsement of authentic products and activities that promote the ‘Made in Italy’ trademark.

During Fine Food Australia, the Italian Pavilion will be located within Flavours of the World area, at stands G2 and H2.
