PRESS ACCREDITATION NOTE

“EU’s Global Gateway and Private Sector – Challenges and Opportunities for the Italian System

(Farnesina, 22 May 2024)

 

On Wednesday 22 May at 9.30 a.m., the workshop “EU’s Global Gateway and Private Sector – Challenges and Opportunities for the Italian System” will be held at the Farnesina, organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in agreement with the EU Commission and in collaboration with ICE Agency.

The event will start with a plenary session, with speeches by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hon. Antonio Tajani, the European Commissioners in charge of International Partnerships and Neighbourhood Policies (on video), the President of ICE Agency, Matteo Zoppas, and the organisations and institutions for the internationalisation of the Italian economic system.

This will be followed by three panels on Transport and Infrastructures, Climate and Energy, and Digital Sector, in which officials from the Foreign Ministry and the European Commission, as well as leading Italian companies, will participate.

Global Gateway is the new European strategy to promote – in EU partner countries, and together with them – investment in sustainable infrastructure in the digital, energy and transport sectors to foster connectivity and promote competitiveness and growth of the EU and partner countries worldwide, also through the strengthening of education, research and public health systems. It will also be a useful driver to catalyse investment to the benefit of the Mattei Plan for Africa projects.

Global Gateway is the EU’s contribution to the effort for bridging the global infrastructure investment gap. It is in line with the commitment made by the G7 leaders in June 2021 to launch an Infrastructure Partnership to meet global infrastructure development needs. It is also in tune with the UN 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
