Investing in Italy

Focus on Fashion, Industrial products, Automotives

PwC Italy and PwC Japan – One firm seminar for Japanese investors
PwC Italy together with PwC Japan are organizing the “Investing in Italy” seminar welcoming special speakers from the most important Italian governmental institutions; Embassy of Italy – Trade Promotion Section and Central Bank of Italy.
Italy is the 2nd largest manufacturing economy in Europe, surpassed only by Germany and it is also the 3rd largest economy in the Eurozone. Such advanced and high manufacturing expertise have been maintained and further refined for many years thanks to its focus on quality, care to customers, and traditionally inherited technologies and know-how. In this seminar, we would like to direct a spotlight on the three most prominent Italian industries: Fashion, Industrial products, and Automotives.
The objective of this seminar is to invite Japanese companies to the Italian business environment with a comprehensive and practical guide on how to invest in Italy and reveal undiscovered M&A opportunities currently ongoing.
The event is accessible for free of charge. The registration is required.
