From May 19th to 21st the Italian System carried out a business mission in Mozambique. The Italy-Mozambique Economic Forum was promoted by the Italian Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Economic Development and by several Mozambican authorities including the Minister of Industry and Trade, Armando Inroga.
The delegation was led by the Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Carlo Calenda, and by Paolo Zegna, chairman of the Technical Committee for the internationalization of Confindustria. 80 companies, six trade associations and five banks participated to the Forum.
This is considered as one of the most important Italian missions in a sub-Saharan African country; Mozambique arouses considerable interest since it is a dynamic country with great resources and a development potential that is growing at 8% per year.
Calenda, the Deputy Minister, proposed to the Italian entrepreneurs a visit to the DREAM center of Maputo, which he had visited last August, as an example of Italian entrepreneurship, quality and excellence.
The friendly atmosphere created by both patients and staff, the beauty of the center, the excellence of service, the advanced diagnostics, all completely free of charge, have sparked enthusiasm and desire to listen.
Recognizing an Italian excellence in the DREAM program, the Italian entrepreneurs were encouraged to invest in Mozambique and to support the development of DREAM in the country. In fact, many of them expressed the desire to establish an alliance between DREAM and Italian entrepreneurs.
The visit went on, beyond the scheduled timing: many committed to support in different ways the work of Dream in Mozambique, underlining that Dream "represents the good part of Italy, the one that fills us with pride, the one that makes people speak well of Italy also abroad "
