Italy’s Economic Diplomacy, 13 November: latest news from the world

SME Day 2019

Next 15 November will mark the 10th edition of the National SME Day, organised by Piccola Industria Confindustria in association with other national trade associations.

This year, the visits and meetings dedicated to the students and teachers of middle and secondary schools, which are also open to local administrators and journalists, will involve almost 1,300 companies and 46,000 players. The meetings aim to show young generations what it means to do business and the commitment, passion and dedication that go into making products or in providing the services offered on the market and how tradition is combined with innovation, and technology with know-how.

This edition will especially focus on counterfeited and ‘Italian-sounding’ products, resilience and industry 4.0.

The event is sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and schedules a number of initiatives across Italy and abroad, also on different dates. Events are scheduled in the

Balkans, with the participation of Confindustria Albania, Confindustria Bulgaria, Confindustria Romania and Confindustria Serbia; in Belgium, in association with the Confindustria Brussels Delegation; and, in the United States, in partnership with the Italian Embassy in Washington, the Miami Scientific Italian Community (MSIC), ISSNAF, MAYAC, AbroadTo the Community of Italian Companies, ODLI, Orgoglio Brescia and, from this year, also in Portugal, Spain and Tunisia.
