THE ITALIAN-SWEDISH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ASSOSVEZIA
The Italian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce Assosvezia is an autonomous association open to companies, organizations and people interested in expanding their network of Swedish contacts in Italy.
The activities of this business network are aimed at Swedish companies, their employees and self-employed professionals in Italy. Assosvezia is recognized by Italian institutions and Unioncamere as a mixed Chamber of Commerce in Italy.
Over the years, Assosvezia, the Italian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce, has grown and welcomed an increasing number of members who have joined as convinced supporters of Swedish values and best practices.
Assosvezia, the Italian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce, is based in the centre of Milan and represents a wide network of Swedish multinational companies in Italy, Italian companies with interests in the Swedish market, freelance professionals, consultants and young professionals.
The Italian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce Assosvezia seeks to:
- Provide member companies with a space in which to exchange views and meet with organizations that want to create business opportunities
- Convey Swedish best practices and the values of innovation, ethics, sustainability and quality of life, which are the essence of Swedish culture, to Italian institutions and the general public
- Raise awareness in Italy of Swedish culture and its traditions
- Promote trade between Italy and Sweden.
The Italian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce Assosvezia organizes numerous events during the year for companies and individual members that are part of its network.
Different types of events are held, but they are always focused on trade and the Swedish identity. The Chamber wants to promote learnings about the labour market, equality and innovation through seminars, meetings with institutions and in-depth studies on economics and finance.
Assosvezia has organized St. Lucia celebrations in Milan since 1995, with a concert open to the public and a very exclusive Gala Dinner. Midsummer celebrations have also been held since 2015.
