President's Message

During the first Convention of Italian Entrepreneurs Worldwide, organized in Rome by the Minister for Italians Living Abroad, ideas was emerged that the Italian Business Communities abroad can provide an extraordinary opportunity and competitive advantage for Italy, and strengthen the relations with the local institutions and business environment in the country where they live.

In June 2004 CIIM (Confederation of Italian Entrepreneurs Living Worldwide) was established with the intent to develop a global business network linking Italian business communities abroad with businesses operating in Italy. CIIM's goal is to enable its members to work cooperatively in foreign markets to promote innovation and the opportunity to exchange experiences, ideas and contacts.

Participating members hold high ranking positions in today's business community, are either Italian or of Italian origin or connected with the Italian Business System. The Confederation represents an important lobbying platform for the "Other Italy".
