Asigitalia celebrates its first year of life: the Association for the Italo-Eurasian Economic Exchange and the Near Mediterranean Countries has become a point of reference for economic and financial synergies and not only.
For this important anniversary, we interviewed President Rossana Rodà Daloiso.
President, a really important birthday that of the first year of Asigitalia. What were the objectives pursued and what the results achieved?
It was a year full of events, but above all of enormous satisfaction. Asigitalia aims to create economic and financial synergies between Italian companies, interested in asserting their presence in the Caspian and Mediterranean countries. Among these, the Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Tunisia have shown particular interest in heterogeneous Italian commercial realities. We have promoted the culture and the international twinning taking care of the associated companies both in commercial terms, both in fiscal and legal terms. Many Italian companies are already working (for privacy I can not say anything else) with local companies.
Among the events carried out during the year we mention: the memorandum of understanding Kazakh Economic Mission; the conference on cyber-security; twinning with Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Saudi Arabia; twinning in Biserte with the Hannibal association; the meeting at the Moroccan embassy; the forum of February 7, 2018 “The future of economic cooperation between Italy and Mediterranean countries”; participation in the second edition of the Mediterranean Festival of Novegro in March 2018 and many others. We have also been present abroad with various events, including many in Algeria on the occasion of the International Fair. Lately we have decided to continue the cooperation and cultural exchanges with the countries of the Eurasian area.
Asigitalia also moves on the social: among the most important initiatives are those in collaboration with the Haziel association with the important project of donating a home to the Samante family in Kenya and a dinner of the poor during Ramadan in Tunisia.
It is very important to be able to help others, especially families and young people in difficulty. Italy, and not only that, must look forward: to the future, to innovation and to everything that makes you feel good.
What do you plan to develop in the future?
In the immediate future we plan to make the agreements with the various countries of the Mediterranean and Euro-Asia area, increase the twinning and cultural exchanges with other countries.
For the autumn of 2018, we will organize in Rome a forum on the Eurasian area with all the political and institutional representatives, as has already been done in Milan on 7 February 2018 for the Mediterranean area, in the Lombardy region.
We will also follow the school-training-work sector and soon the protocols will be signed with Italian and foreign schools thanks to the support of local institutions and entrepreneurs: the most deserving young people will be awarded scholarships. Among the social projects, we will also give scholarships to a football school in Tunisia.
