Now in its third edition, the Italia Africa Business Week is confirmed in 2019 as the first event of its kind in Italy. This is a multilingual and multilevel economic Forum where African and Italian entrepreneurs can meet, get to know each other and communicate. The aim is to create a fertile land to develop business opportunities and new cooperation agreements. Two days of networking, focused encounters, meeting and conferences organised to create productive partnerships with high human and business value.
CFE Tax Advisers Europe is one of the partner organisations who contributed to the setting-up of this event, and will be represented by President Piergiorgio Valente, who will participate to the debates on 27 November to discuss Customs and trade between Africa and Italy. The CFE believes that in the times we are living in, in which international cooperation between all stakeholders takes a crucial role, such occasions and events represent the most important opportunities to build new partnership and strengthen the old ones.

The Concept

On 18 May 2016 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and of International Cooperation organised in Rome the “First Ministerial Conference Italy-Africa” stressing the need to create a stable link between the two shores of the Mediterranean, between two worlds as close as they are distant. The Italy-Africa Conference was a spark and it is precisely to give continuity to this new process that Italia Africa Business Week (IABW) was born, a practical and high-level economic and commercial forum. In the first two editions, IABW has concretely succeeded in facilitating the knowledge between the African economic, commercial and financial world and the Italian one, it has created synergies and developed partnerships in various sectors: textiles and fashion, commercial, agribusiness, construction. In order to improve these relationships, to favor the creation of networks and to achieve a shared growth of both sides in win-win mode, the third edition of Italia Africa Business Week will focus on building the 4.0 business.
