The Embassy of Italy in Manila, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ICCPI) have organized an exclusive Trade Mission in Manila that will take place from the 6th to the 8th of March 2023. The mission will be focused in three main sectors - Water and Agriculture, Transportation and Energy - with the participation of over 20 prominent Italian companies, including Fincantieri, Irritec, AQP, Leonardo and Enel Green Power.
The three days mission will start with a visit to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), where the Italian companies will explore the opportunities offered by the Bank, with in-depth presentations by ADB’s sectoral and geographical units.
The second day will be divided into the three sectors and the Italian companies will have the opportunity to establish a direct contact with the Philippine authorities active in the energy, transportation, water and agriculture sectors, and present their excellent products to all the sectoral agencies responsible for the different sub-sectors.
On the third day, the Italian delegation will meet with representatives of the largest Philippine conglomerates at the New World Makati Hotel, both through presentations of their profiles (first half of the day) and in-depth B2B talks with a rotation between companies based on the matching arrangements suggested by ICCPI, ITA and the Embassy, and with their mediation.
The trade mission aims to create new investment opportunities between Italy and the Philippines and showcase some of the best Italian companies active in the water-treatment, infrastructure and renewable energy sectors.
