Mr. Sergio Lugaresi, recently appointed Executive Director of the Asian Development Bank, with responsibility also for Italy, met AIICP members on Thursday, December the 10th 2020, to illustrate ADB activities and the possibilities it offers to Italian companies.

Its activity is aimed not only at institutions, but also at private companies.
