ROME – Israel's biggest economic conference abroad is expected to take place in Milan next month: The two-day Israel-Italy Business Forum will open on June 14 and is expected to be attended by more than 500 businesspeople from both countries.
An intergovernmental meeting will be held in Rome a day earlier, and the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem is looking into the option of having Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu open the conference in Milan, which will be attended by Italy's business leaders, the next day.
The Forum aims to encourage business cooperation between small and medium-sized Israeli and Italian companies.
The conference is organized by the economic attaché in Israel's Embassy in Rome and the Trade Commission in Milan, and is expected to focus on water, health, science and security-related issues.
