 "The interests of Italy, ASEAN and the European Union coincide," stressed Italy-ASEAN Association President Romano Prodi

The sixth edition of the event organized by The European House Ambrosetti with the Italy-ASEAN Association and the patronage of Maeci and Confindustria was held on Wednesday, July 6, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The High-Level Dialogue on ASEAN-Italy Economic Relations is the benchmark event in the ASEAN region for strengthening economic and strategic ties between ASEAN countries and Italy. During the hybrid physical-digital event, cutting-edge topics were addressed: macroeconomic prospects of ASEAN in the post-pandemic scenario, green technologies for a sustainable future, e-economy, smart technologies and value chains 4.0, aerospace and security for resilience, investment opportunities and tools for cooperation between Italy and ASEAN countries. The event was virtually opened by Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio: "Strengthening relations with ASEAN is a priority for Italy," he said. "Already more than 700 Italian companies are doing business in the ASEAN market, third in Asia and fifth in the world, but there is still huge untapped potential both in traditional sectors such as agribusiness and in the innovative sectors of renewables and digital transition," Undersecretary Manlio Di Stefano said instead. The event was attended by Malaysia's Minister of Economy Dato Sri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister of Cambodia Sok Chenda Sophea, ASEAN Deputy Secretary General Satvinder Sing, among others. Romano Prodi (President of the Italy-ASEAN Association), Ramesh Subramaniam (Director General for Southeast Asia at the Asian Development Bank), Carlo Ferro (President of the Italian Trade Agency), Valerio De Molli (Managing Partner & CEO, The European House - Ambrosetti), Lorenzo Tavazzi (Head of International Development at The European House - Ambrosetti), and the two Vice Presidents of Italy-ASEAN Association, Michelangelo Pipan and Romeo Orlandi, also spoke. "The interests of Italy, ASEAN and the European Union coincide: a world order characterized by cooperation and not confrontation," said President Prodi. "A world that promotes trade, facilitates procurement and promises global development, with the goal of keeping environmental risks at bay".
