the Treviso and Belluno ceremonies of “Loyalty to Work and Economic Progress”, as well as the “Social Innovation and Sustainable Development Award” for companies that have implemented
significant projects in the field of innovation and environmental, social and economic sustainability.
An ongoing dialogue with the economic system and companies, supporting them with strategic projects to remain competitive on national and world markets.
Every year we meet to strengthen that effective bond between us PA (Public Administration) representatives – said Chamber of Commerce and Assocamerestero President Mario
Pozza – for which I thank everyone present. Awareness and recognition of what the network of institutions does and can do to support and make competitive the economic system and
businesses, represents an important step in the path we have travelled together in recent years.
In my new role as President of Assocamerestero I will further contribute to the promotion of our economic system and businesses abroad with the representation of the 84 Chambers of Commerce
in the 61 countries of the world.
I am delighted to inform you that the FICTS Executive Committee chaired by President Prof. Franco Ascani has appointed me as the only Italian in the relationship between the business

I invite companies to the inevitable digital transition and cybersecurity, to the internationalisation also of small businesses, to corporate social responsibility, to the circular economy,
to the commitment to make processes and products sustainable in order to respect the beauty of our territories that inspire ideas and visions that make us famous all over the world, and again,
to the attention to young people in order to capitalise on the present and plan future actions together. To successfully achieve all this, public-private collaboration is essential, and we are
here today – President Pozza emphasises – to reinforce this strategic partnership.
The ceremony was accompanied by the performance of the musicians of the A. Steffani Conservatory of Castelfranco Veneto, supported by the Chamber of Commerce.

Data for the first nine months of 2022 – The Comment of the President Mario Pozza
“The data for the first nine months of 2022 confirm very strong export growth also for our provinces,” commented the President of the Chamber of Commerce of Treviso-Belluno, Mario Pozza.
“For Treviso it is +15.5% and for Belluno almost +20%”.
“But these positive dynamics incorporate the transfer of energy and raw material price increases onto final prices – the President recalls – and the fact that the high cost of energy
is weighing on our companies is undeniable: the recent Unioncamere survey on a sample of manufacturing companies in the Veneto region tells us that on average in one year, gas bills have
doubled and energy bills have more than doubled: this means that it costs more to produce”.
“We are theregore moving in the right direction – Pozza continued – given the agreement on the gas cap reached in recent days by the European Energy Council, but not on the price;
just as I look favourably on the other energy-related projects on which convergence has been found, again in the European sphere: the authorisation of renewables, the package on solidarity and
joint procurement, and the market correction mechanism”.
“These measures go in the right direction, better late than never, that is to dampen speculation on price rises in order to give a breath of fresh air to our companies, which – the
President continued – have so far shown great resilience: two out of three companies, again of the Veneto manufacturing sample, have declared that they have kept their working regimes
unchanged in order not to lose market share or because they have not experienced a drop in orders, thus managing to absorb the higher costs incurred”.
“Going back to the export data for the first nine months of 2022 – the President concludes – I see that the markets of the European Union (+18-24% between Treviso and Belluno) and the
United States (+19-26%) are the main drivers. First indications, perhaps, on how the export trajectories are changing or will change, following the pandemic (sales in China and Hong Kong are
still negative for Treviso, both in comparison with last year and 2019, for Belluno the recovery is in the year but not on the pre-pandemic) and the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The same goes for
the supplies, to be studied if the supply chains are changing and which are the reference markets. These are all questions, which deserve to be explored in the coming months. We must create a
network and seize the opportunity of regional export structures such as Venicepromex and also the network of the 84 Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad with Assocamerestero. In my new role as
President it will be a primary objective to give small companies too, new goals for internationalisation”.
