The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, SCCI, held discussions with a delegation from Lombardy in Italy on opportunities to enhance economic and trade relations between the investment companies and institutions that operate in Sharjah and their counterparts in Italy, and reviewed ways to support partnerships between the two sides in various economic sectors and fields.

The meeting, recently held at the chamber’s headquarters, was attended by Mohamed Ahmed Amin, Acting Director-General of the SCCI; Pietro Sala, Director of Institutional Affairs and External and International Relations at Assolombarda; and Alessandra Salina Amorini, Head of International Relations and Expo Dubai 2020 at Assolombarda. The meeting was also attended by Ibrahim Rashid Al Jarwan, Director of Economic Relations and Marketing at the SCCI; and Omar Ali Saleh, Director of the Department of International Relations at the SCCI.

The two sides discussed a number of issues that are of common interest to both sides, including the prospect of organising joint events in the future that can help contribute in developing cooperation between Sharjah and Assolombarda, and to enhance awareness on the services offered by each side to its members. These events include the possibility of organising a trade delegation from Sharjah to Lombardy, in addition to the prospect of holding an educational seminar in Sharjah that reviews the investment opportunities in the Italian region, and the possibility of organising a ‘Milan Day in Sharjah’ that highlights the most important sectors in the region.

Mohamed Ahmed Amin, Acting Director-General of the SCCI, highlighted the chamber’s interest in finding a common platform to develop economic relations between Sharjah and the Italian region, and to exchange information and expertise between the two sides. He also stressed the importance of encouraging the companies from the private sectors of both Sharjah and Italy to participate in the economic exhibitions and events held by both sides.
