Six sessions focused on the Gulf states, with an operations-based and practical approach: the Export Champion Program is an education project which is custom-made for companies. It is designed by SACE, in collaboration with Luiss Business School, with input from the Italian Commissioner’s Office at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The initiative features the Embassies of seven Gulf states, with a detailed focus on every single country, and has received the institutional blessing of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, with the participation of Liborio Stellino, Director General for Economic Internationalization and Deputy Director General for the Promotion of Italy. Input from Paolo Glisenti, the Italian Commissioner for Expo 2020 Dubai, is also expected.
The program is one of the activities of the new SACE Academy: the course’s main goal is to support companies interested in operating in this part of the world – which includes the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Oman – and strengthening their technical and specialized competencies in the export and internationalization sectors.
