Visit of Italian Deputy Minister for Economic Development Gilberto Pichetto


The first stage of the institutional mission to the United Arab Emirates of the Italian Deputy Minister for Economic Development Gilberto Pichetto ends in the presence of the Italian industrial and economic world. The meeting, promoted by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the UAE and Under the Auspices of the Italian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, was attended by the Italian Consul General Giuseppe Finocchiaro, the ICE President Carlo Ferro, together with the Secretary-General of the Italian Chamber Mauro Marzocchi.

In the opening greeting to the evening, the Deputy Minister recalled that the companies, supported by the approximately 90 Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad, among which, the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Dubai that organized the meeting, and it is always among the first Chambers in the world for activity, are the voice of our country.

A country that has always been a “transformer”, which has been able to make up for the small number of raw materials at its disposal by inventing and reinventing itself through its companies, the driving force of the Italian economy.
Carlo Ferro, President of ICE, who also joined the celebration of the Italian entrepreneurial reality, underlined in his speech Italy’s ability to create an interconnected system: from the ministry of economic development to the consular network and the companies presence at Expo, resulted in a keen interest by the Emirates towards the Italian entrepreneurial system as demonstrated by the most recent visit to the Italian industry clusters by the Emirati Minister of Economy, His Excellency Al Marri.

Italy, as the President of ICE said, has given ample proof of representing a valid partner in the realization of sustainable and digital development of countries in strong growth and with great economic availability such as that of the UAE, whose commercial exchange with Italy is currently equal to 8.4 billion euros.

In his speech, the Consul General, in bringing greetings from the Italian Ambassador, recalled the importance of the UAE for Italian exports.
Words shared by the Councilor of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Emirates, Stefano Campagna who reiterated the importance of creating connections. The Councilor invited Italian companies to consider the Chamber of Commerce as their home, increasingly committed to achieving important results in the course of this new phase of renewal and transformation which entrepreneurial realities can benefit from, as well as relations with institutions, with the hope of continuing to work together.
