On the first day (6 March), the meeting will take place at the General Headquarters of the Guardia di Finanza and will start at 9.00 a.m. with the welcome speech by the Commander General of the Guardia di Finanza, General Giuseppe Zafarana, and by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani. The Minister of Economy and Finance, Giancarlo Giorgetti, will also participate.

On the second day (7 March), the meeting will take place at the Farnesina in the International Conference Room and will start at 10.00 a.m. with the welcoming speech by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Ambassador Riccardo Guariglia, and the Commander General of the Guardia di Finanza, General Giuseppe Zafarana. A speech by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, is scheduled to follow.

Following the institutional speeches – at approximately 10.30 a.m. – there will be a photo opportunity.
