Ital­ian Con­sul Gen­eral in Karachi, Gian­luca Rubagotti wel­comed the chief guest, Sharmila Fa­rooqi and all the dis­tin­guished guests to the cel­e­bra­tions, said a state­ment on Fri­day.

The CG Italy said that we are liv­ing a strong re-launch of the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions in all fields.

Ac­cord­ing to the Ital­ian CG in Karachi the visit of Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs of Italy, Paolo Gen­tiloni is just the last sight of this re­newed ef­fort to strengthen the bonds of friend­ship be­tween our two Coun­tries and two na­tions.

Rubagotti said that in the trade field, the re­cent visit of the Ital­ian Trade Com­mis­sioner, who an­nounced the re­open­ing of a trade com­mis­sion of­fice here in Karachi, which, he was happy to con­firm, will start op­er­at­ing in a few months. This is some­thing which needed to have a stronger team in or­der to be able to cap­i­tal­ize on the var­i­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties in front of us, he said.

He said that to­gether with the Ital­ian De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee, the Con­sulate has or­ga­nized for the first time a sem­i­nar road show, do­ing busi­ness with Italy, which has given the op­por­tu­nity, to the busi­ness com­mu­nity of the whole of Pak­istan, to know more about the Ital­ian eco­nomic and in­dus­trial sys­tem, paving the way for a se­ries of di­rect in­ter­ac­tions with Ital­ian com­pa­nies in­ter­ested in this up­com­ing mar­ket.

But an­other very im­por­tant field of action for a con­sulate is cul­ture. In the past six months the Con­sulate brought mu­si­cians, pro­fes­sors, pub­lish­ers, art deal­ers and pain­ters to Karachi.—APP
