Italy Meets Tianjin 16 Nov
We are pleased to inform you about the webinar “Italy Meets Tianjin" organized by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce with the support of the Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone, which will be held on November 16th, 2022.
Tianjin represents an area of strong development, establishing itself as an attractive pole for Italian companies thanks to its geographical advantages and its port infrastructure. The strong link with Italy also constitutes a unique advantage for businesses.
As part of bilateral relations, strengthened during the Italy-China Business Forum held in Tianjin in September 2019, the Italian government signed a memorandum of understanding to establish an Industrial Park for Small and Medium Enterprises. The main industrial sectors of Tianjin include: mechanical, automotive, petrochemical, aerospace, biomedical, and textile.
The meeting aims to create an opportunity for concrete dialogue between the institutions of Tianjin and the Italian companies operating in the area. The aim is to raise awareness of the opportunities the Tianjin area offers to companies that approach the Chinese market through a dialogue with companies, institutions, and the leading players operating locally.
The event will be in Chinese and Italian language.
