(ANSA) - PALERMO, DECEMBER 2 - The work done by the Sicily-China mission started in 2015 will continue next year as well thanks to cooperation between the regional government, the European Union, the Enterprise Europe Network (Confindustria Sicilia, Consorzio Arca and Consorzio Catania Ricerche) and Sprint Sicilia. Expo Milano 2015 also provided an opportunity for new contacts that in some cases have led to export contracts for products and technologies. A workshop in the Confindustria Sicilia headquarters in Palermo was a chance to take stock of the situation. The meeting, taken part in by regional productive activities councillor Mariella Lo Bello, analyzed the collaboration with China undertaken by the Sicily regional government and its partners. ''Internationalization is indispensable,'' said Nino Salerno, deputy chief of Confindustria Sicilia. ''The Chinese market can surely give an important outlet. The missions have always given good results. Many enterprises have gone to China and now we must be good at going forward with the agreements. There is growth in Sicilian exports in China.'' In 2015, seven incoming missions were conducted with 350 foreign operators who came to Sicily to sign agreements, 120 of which were Chinese. (ANSA).
