Italy and the United Arab Emirates – share a common commitment to the theme of sustainability, driven by the realisation that there is no growth and development if we are unable to look beyond our business and focus on the future of future generations and the planet.
The Dubai Expo, which is currently wrapping up, was a major worldwide showcase for the United Arab Emirates in its 50th year since its inception. There are several sectors where the two nations’ collaboration provides great chances for growth and strengthening, ranging from cultural to scientific cooperation and, of course, the economic arena.
The initiatives that several Italian and Emirati enterprises are working on, all of which share a similar thread of innovation in the service of sustainability and community involvement.
