CIeNET, a leading provider of technical consulting, software engineering, and solution service, was invited to speak at Forum of Internationalization of Made in Italy (FIMI) in Milan on November 15, 2017. Titled, “Building a concrete roadmap for Italy and China’s Joint Growth under the Belt and Road Initiatives,” the event was organized by Italy-China Foundation, Messe Frankfurt and ELLE DECOR with the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Economic Development and the Chinese Ministry of Commerce.

The Belt and Road Initiative would provide long-term development chances for growing industry sectors in Italy and China, according to professionals from both countries. The issue was discussed at a recent forum held in the Italian city of Milan, which attracted Italian and Chinese entrepreneurs, officials, and experts.
