Focus on Italian investors in new MEB agreement

Focus on Italian investors in new MEB agreement

By Cassandra Tanti - June 14, 2021

The MEB and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Nice have signed an agreement that will ramp-up their services to provide members with new local and international opportunities as the recovery takes off.  

Promoting trade between Italy, Monaco and France is the objective currently set by the Monaco Economic Board (MEB) and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Nice to make it easier for foreign companies on the Riviera and in the Principality to set up and grow.

This new collaboration is the result of a meeting between MEB Executive Director General Guillaume Rose and Italy’s Ambassador in Monaco Giulio Alaimo, and it aims to further boost trade between Monaco and Italy with the focus being on Italian investors.

“We are delighted to forge these closer ties with the Italian Chamber of Commerce,” says MEB Deputy Director Justin Highman. “Italy is number two after France in terms of trade with the Principality. After such a difficult period we are very positive for the future, the recovery is here and we are delighted to be able to count on the Italian Chamber of Commerce.”

Justin Highman and Italian Chamber Director Agostino Pesce formalised the partnership on Wednesday 2nd June at an event celebrating the Republic of Italy’s National Day.

It is a unique opportunity for Italian, Monegasque and French companies to grow and develop their markets. Having already organised a joint webinar in April, the two organisations will be working much closer together.

The signing will see the two organisations share a stand at the 2021 Monaco Business fair, is the MEB did with the CCI Nice Côte d’Azur at the 2020 edition.
