On July 2, 2020, with the support of ICCPI, the European House- Ambrosetti and Associazione Italia ASEAN held its annual High-Level Dialogue in ASEAN Italy Economic Relations digitally. Originally scheduled to take place in Kuala Lumpur, the event had to be moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The speakers and panelists engaged in interesting discussions on regional integration, collaborative policies for trade and investments, Italy as future development partner for ASEAN countries and other opportunities for mutual growth and collaboration between Italy and ASEAN. Inevitably, the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on industries was thoroughly analyzed during the entire session.
