President Mario Pozza spoke at the European Day of Italian Excellence, Event – CRE held at the European Parliament.
Later, General Secretary Domenico Mauriello and Belgo-Italian Chamber of Commerce President Fabio Morvilli spoke about the role of Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad and the Belgo-Italian Chamber’s services for businesses.
President Mario Pozza’s speech:
Good morning to all of you, I extend my greetings to Ambassador Stefano Verecchia and of course to the MEPs, the entrepreneurs present, colleagues.
A special greeting goes to our interim president Fabio Morvilli.
The theme we are addressing today, is an important one: Italian excellence in the European context.
We are the Bel Paese, but the expression “Bel Paese” is also related to the excellences, and to defend these excellences and to promote them, we need to do realize a very important networking with Embassies, Consulates, ICE and the Italian Chamber System abroad.
The Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad have their own role, which they can develop even more to help the country system, because our target is small businesses, their excellences, and we have to promote them in all those countries where there is a desire for Italy.
I have seen this in my travels, visiting Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad distributed all around the world.
I reiterate that especially today it is important to realize this networking among national and international institutions and Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad.
Today this important day is an example, MEPs, institutions, trade associations, entrepreneurs constitute a network that absolutely must continue.
Many people copy our products, which we must defend, it is essential that the country protect this specificity of ours. We do not have raw materials, we do not have the wealth of many other countries, however, we have a history, we have a culture that we know how to transmit in our products.
We personalize them, we give them a soul, and this makes sure that we get to those 650 billion in exports.
The Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad can make an additional contribution, because there is a desire for Italy around the world.
We are available, I hope as soon as possible to be even more active with all the institutions I mentioned and the national agencies, because this is our task.
A task that our interim President Fabio Morvilli has been doing for many years with the Chamber of Luxembourg and Brussels, an excellence. I entrust him, together with our Secretary General Mauriello, to lead this day.
