For this 4th edition, 23 Italian companies are present and represented. You should know that Italy is a privileged partner of Algeria in this sector.

The major part of small businesses in Algeria in this sector is equipped with Italian machinery. Even as ICE agency we promote the Made in Italy in Algeria due to the great importance of this sector. I am sure we will be more and more present at this important event in the years to come.

We participate at plast & printpack alger 2016 because we want to promote our machines, we want to meet the decision makers and we want to demonstrate our presence in Algeria.

We are very satisfied with the number and quality of the professional visitors.

According to figures of VDMA-the German Engineering Association, Algeria ranks among Africa‘s Top 4 importers of plastics, packaging and printing technology (in line with South Africa, Egypt and Nigeria).

So it came as no surprise that the 4th plast alger and the 5th printpack alger in 2016 were as big and as international as ever before. The record participation testifies to the considerable value the international business community meanwhile attaches to Algeria.
