LEBITALIA, the Lebanese Italian Business Council, aims at expanding economic and trade relations, as well as fostering business relationships and investments between Lebanon and Italy. The Council was formed in 2013 by a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Lebanese Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture and the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Crafts in Milan.
Imports from Italy in 2016 totaled $1.4 billion with 16,6% increase compared to 2015. Italy remains– as it is the case for years – the first European Trade Partner of Lebanon and the second after China.
This year marks Italy’s 11th consecutive presence in Project Lebanon exhibition at BIEL, 16-19 May, with a national pavilion.
Taking advantage of Project Lebanon 2017 and to promote the Council, explain its objectives and to interact with Lebanese entrepreneurs, LEBITALIA will have a special stand at the show.
