The first Italian Investment Attraction Desk in the UAE was launched in November in Dubai during the "Invest in Italy 2016" roadshow organised by Italian Trade Agency. The event was attended by more than 100 investors, businessmen and corporate individuals to whom Italy's future investment plans have been illustrated.
The opening of the desk is aiming to increase direct investments in Italy from the UAE, which already owns a stock of $385 million in our country. On top of that, the number of Emirati companies in Italy amounted to 66, with 17,000 employees and a turnover of ?3.5 billion.
The new desk will encourage capital investments, by facilitating direct communication between foreign entities and their Italian counterparts.
