3rd edition already has 10 businesses from eight countries
The Italo-Arab Chamber of Cooperation (IACC) announced Tuesday that its 3rd annual international exhibition for Italo-Arab businesses will take place in the Sardinian capital March 17-18 at the city’s Regina Margherita hotel, with 10 businesses from eight countries already scheduled to attend.
This year’s event, whose theme is “Italy and the Challenge of the Arab Markets”, aims to give the island’s businesses an opportunity to strengthen existing relationships or build new ones with companies from North Africa and the Middle East. The businesses already set to attend are from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Lebanon.
The two-day exchange is co-funded by the Sardinia Foundation, and will focus on the agroalimentary and energy sectors as well as innovation between information and communications technology (ICT) and biomedicine.
Among the companies vying to participate in the event, the IACC will select 30 to receive a “Gold Card” that will allow them to take part in business meetings with Arab investors.
In attendance at the announcement presentation on Tuesday were IACC board member Samir Al Kassir and Carthage University Rector Lassaad El Asmi.
