Masks and rapid tests, innovative sanitization systems and special bio-containment stretchers to move patients, these are some of the solutions offered by 25 Italian companies, 9 of which from Emilia-Romagna, which, through a US-Italian project, will concretely cover various aspects related to the Covid-19 pandemic, from personal prevention to the treatment of the disease.

These companies have been selected for the Invest project, promoted by the U.S. government through the federal agency Usaid, United States Agency for International Development, which aims to support the Italian private sector engaged in the front line in the fight against the pandemic.

The project was presented in an online event organized by the American Embassy in Rome, in collaboration with the Emilia-Romagna Region. The virtual meeting was an opportunity to present the 25 Italian companies selected for the project and to officially start the technical assistance provided to them by Roncucci&Partners, the business consulting firm that won the Usaid call for proposals.

For Emilia-Romagna, the United States represent an irreplaceable destination country with 10% of total exports, worth over 6 billion euros per year. Emilia-Romagna represents a very important share of Italian exports to the USA: 97% of tiles exported from Italy come from Emilia-Romagna, as do 57% of meat, 40% of dairy products, and over 30% of machinery and wiring equipment.
