“The Farnesina: numbers and facts”. That will be the key theme of the presentation of the Statistical Yearbook for 2015 at the Farnesina on Tuesday 21 July 2015. The event will open at 12.00 with an address by the Secretary General, Michele Valensise.
Now in its 16th edition, the publication provides a statistical snapshot of Italian foreign policy in 2014. The presentation will open with a special focus on the figures for culture, the Italian language abroad and economic diplomacy. This will be followed by an illustration of the key data concerning the organisation of the Italian Presidency of the EU Council.
The event, which is open to the press, will also touch on the numbers of entry visas and introduce the new “Visa for Italy” portal.
Other aspects of the work of the MFAIC will also be illustrated, including international visits, development cooperation commitments and interventions by the Crisis Unit. An entire section of the Yearbook is dedicated to the data for Italians abroad (“registry office”, numbers of Italians in prison, child abductions, consular services).
The Statistical Yearbook has become a key reference work for those working in the foreign policy field or who wish to examine the work of the Farnesina in 2014 more closely through statistical information.
