Sharjah, UAE, July 29, 2020

The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry, SCCI and the Embassy of Italy to the UAE, recently discussed how to make the most of the modern Italian technologies in boosting Sharjah’s manufacturing production.
SCCI discussed means of developing the economic cooperation and the possibility of organising joint economic events to find out the investment opportunities and enhance communication mechanisms between the business communities in the two countries, a statement said.
This was stated during the virtual meeting held between Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman, SCCI, and Nicolas Linner, Ambassador of the Republic of Italy to the UAE, in the presence of Mohammad Ahmed Amin Al-Awadi, SCCI Director-General, and Fatima Khalifa Al Mokarrab, Director of International Relations Department, SCCI. 
They reviewed issues of common interest that help drive the commercial, investment, and industrial relations between the two countries to meet the aspirations of the private sector on both the sides.
The meeting also touched on stimulating the private sector to actively participate in economic events and activities, especially after the gradual comeback of the economic life and the economic recovery from Covid-19 repercussions.
Al Owais stressed that the SCCI is keen to boost the economic cooperation between Sharjah and Italy to advanced levels and to provide all the facilities and benefits that help strengthen the commercial relations and mutual investment and consolidate the ties between business communities in both countries, as well as to make the most of effective membership of the SCCI in the Federation of the UAE Chambers, and the Joint Italian Arab Chamber.
The SCCI Chairman highlighted the importance of the mutual participation in the economic events held in the two friendly countries, shedding light on the cooperation opportunities and utilisation of the Italian expertise in the manufacturing and agricultural sectors and in the technical training field to help prepare high-calibre and competent human cadres that support market labour in the emirate.
Ambassador Lennier stressed the Italian Embassy’s willingness to partner with the SCCI in various domains that help support the mutual interests and the bilateral relations. He pointed out the interest of the private sector in Italy to participate in economic, commercial and cultural events and events that take place in the emirate of Sharjah, including the participation of Italian companies and institutions in several exhibitions and events organised or hosted by the Sharjah Expo Center.
