What awaits Italy after the lockdown.
Can Europe’s rebound come from a greater dialogue with Asia?
The British Chamber of Commerce for Italy, through the British Chambers of Commerce Global Business Network, opens a dialogue with the British Chamber of Commerce in China to allow members to hear first hand what life is like as the restrictions on movement and trading start to fall. Members will be able to ask their own questions to the panellists and get live answers.
- What can Italy learn from China’s response to COVID-19?
- When can businesses expect to get back to normal?”
- What actually is the “new normal” in China?
During the seminar we will learn about some of the best practices that have been adopted. We will also hear about UK Government initiatives being put in place to support international businesses.
Furthermore, we will look Beyond COVID-19 and take the opportunity to explore new potential trade opportunities between Italy, China and the UK.
