The Farnesina will host a conference at 9:30 on 24 April entitled “Farnesina-Confindustria encounter on sustainable development”, in the presence of the Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Paolo Gentiloni.
Other participants in the debate, organised by the AVSI Foundation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, will include Deputy Minister for Development Cooperation Lapo Pistelli, President of Confindustria Giorgio Squinzi and other representatives of institutions, businesses and the non-profit sectors.
The meeting will examine cases of alliances between businesses and civil society associations along with two very topical challenges: respect for human rights as a factor in business success, and inclusive finance. Other topics will include the proposal of an “Italian development bank”, the social impact of funds and the social value of savings.
