Located at the center of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy is a strategic gateway for trade between Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, as well as a primary hub that links southern, central and eastern European regions.
As the first member of the G7 to join the Belt & Road Initiative and sign an MoU with China on March 23, 2019, Italy stands at the forefront of bilateral cooperation among Europe & China in fields of logistics, infrastructures, transportation, trade, and finance.

Furthermore, since recently international market approach became more regionalized, global companies are localizing part of their production and services in Europe to keep their global market shares unchanged and guarantee long-term sustainable growth.
In this context, Chic Italia aims to help you create your European base in Italy, leverage your products and business, and support trade and investment initiatives in order to carry forward the spirit of Sino-Italian Belt and Road Initiative.
