The event was organized by the Italian-Libyan Chamber of Commerce with the partnership of the Libyan embassy in Italy, Eni and Sparkle, in collaboration with Unioncamere, Confindustria Assafrica e Mediterraneo, Joint Italian Arab Chamber of Commerce (Jiacc), Promos Italia. Libya has once again represented a great opportunity for the Italian production system and played a central role in Italy's foreign policy. Despite all the known difficulties, the North African country has a rich context, with an immature but lively and composite entrepreneurial system - like the Italian one - mainly made up of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with a strong predilection for Made in Italy.
The meeting will take place in the presence of representatives of Italian and Libyan institutions and around 100 Libyan entrepreneurs, in order to launch a new phase of valorisation and increase in commercial exchanges and further development of bilateral relations between the two countries. Core sectors include: construction, infrastructure, construction, engineering and architecture, logistics; pharmaceuticals, healthcare, cosmetics; agriculture, agri-food, food; oil and gas; digital and information and communication technologies; manufacturing industry. After the plenary session scheduled for the morning of 6 December, sectoral tables will be organized in the afternoon between Libyan and Italian entrepreneurs in order to facilitate networking between companies. The visit to the Network is scheduled for the following day, December 7th Sparkle Operation Center, among the most advanced command, control and security centers in Europe.
