Opportunity to Trade with Milan Market – 621

OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPORT/EXPORT TRADE TO MILAN, ITALY

Purpose

The MMA and Italian Chamber of Commerce in Melbourne would like to hear from any tenants interested in trade opportunities with Milan, Italy.

Background

In 2001, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Melbourne Market and The Milan Market to foster international trade opportunities between the tenants of the two wholesale markets. This is complemented by a similar agreement between the City of Melbourne and the City of Milan. Thanks to these arrangements and with the forthcoming relocation to Epping’s state of the art facilities, import-export opportunities exploiting counter seasonal trade between Australia and Italy have arisen. The Victorian Government will lead a trade delegation to Milan in May 2015 to coincide with the Milan World Expo. The trade mission will provide a unique opportunity for Victorian exporters to explore new business opportunities or strengthen existing ties with the region and beyond. To link in with the theme of the Expo, Feed the Planet, Energy for Life, the Victorian Government will promote Victoria’s clean, green, quality produce and is seeking interest for participation from Victoria’s food and beverage producers and suppliers. The Melbourne Market and Sogemi Milan Market have a historic relationship and the Expo will create a platform to re-engage with this important partner to strengthen trade links.
