Introduction


The Italy China Foundation, founded in Milan on 11 November 2003, was wanted and created by Cesare Romiti to improve the image and manner of Italy's presence in China and to achieve a different strategic and commercial positioning.
Membership, as founding members of ministries, regions, Confindustria and the major companies and Italian financial groups, shows the complete sharing of objectives. Through the qualitative and quantitative expansion of the membership base, the Foundation intends to represent the Italian business sector with regard to China and to leverage its position Representative to support the Italian entrepreneurship interests against Italian and Chinese institutions.
The recent accession to the Foundation and on the Board of the Association of Chinese Enterprises in Italy has made bilaterally the Foundation's mission: not only at the service of Italian companies in China but also a reference for Chinese enterprises that have invested or are interested to Italy.
The enhancement of the Italian presence in China is supported by the promotion of events and educational, cultural, economic and scientific, in order to present Italy as "Country System".


Born on the continuation of the work conducted by the Italy-China since 1971, over the years the Foundation has grown, expanding its membership base and tightening increasingly close relations with public institutions, large companies and SMEs with multinationals and financial groups, many of what they have done and are still part of its board of directors. The goal, from the earliest years, was to open a dialogue between Italy and China from an economic point of view, cultural and scientific, accounting and making the Italian business sector, to which support is provided in institutional and commercial relations with counterparts Chinese. With this in mind, six years ago it was opened the Continuing Education School of the Foundation, providing Chinese language courses to students and professionals Italians and Italian courses to Chinese students through the Marco Polo program-Turandot, but also works to close contact with the world of schools and the business, thanks to its corporate training courses to prepare the business world to a better interaction with their Asian counterparts. Just last year, the School opened its first offices in China, Chongqing, Mianyang and Chengdu. Today, the Foundation aims to strengthen and develop its mediation role and relationship between Italy and China: If the beginning focused its activities mainly to promote and support the internationalization of Italian companies to China, now the Foundation works increasingly also in the opposite direction, in support of those Chinese companies that choose Italy and Europe for their investments, promoting trade in both directions at the disposal of ever new needs of business.
