“Being close to the Italian production fabric with export support solutions, designed to meet the needs of an increasingly complex and competitive global market. This means creating a system for Exetra, facilitating the interaction between those who buy and sell, managing all the complexity linked to the world of exports and allowing Italian companies to focus on their core business'' - commented Teresio Testa, regional manager of Piedmont, Valle d'Aosta and Liguria of Intesa Sanpaolo and Chairman of Exetra.
