In view of the fourth edition of IVS, scheduled for May 25-26 2022, the summit organisers are renewing the operational collaboration with UNIDO ITPO Italy, the Italian investment and technology promotion office of the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation; a collaboration that shall allow the participation of a selected delegation of Iraqi operators to Industrial Valve Summit 2022.

The meeting is one of the key moments of the project “Investment Promotion for Iraq – Phase II”, funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) and implemented by UNIDO with the aim of fostering the promotion of investments and technology transfer through multilateral partnerships between public and private sectors in Italy and Iraq.

The intensification in trade relations between the two countries will shift through an incoming operation with a pool of Iraqi entrepreneurs, as well as some representatives of local institutions and associations related to the production world, coming to Bergamo in May next year.

During the summit, the delegation will have the opportunity to interface with the oil & gas operators attending the fair: a chance to exchange opinions and for matchmaking activities.

IVS will be an opportunity to weave business relationships and institutional bonds to promote the creation and growth of strategic and technological partnerships between Iraq and the “Italian System”.

UNIDO ITPO Italy is in Rome, and it has been operating under an agreement signed between UNIDO and the Italian government since 1987. The office aims to improve the competitiveness of SMEs in developing countries, through the mobilisation of investments and the transfer of technologies, managerial skills, and capacity building activities.
