The Italian American Chamber of Commerce Chicago, in collaboration with the bank "Banca Popolare di Sondrio", is pleased to announce the opening of its new office located in Milan (at the Banca Popolare di Sondrio Milan office, in Via Santa Maria Fulcorina 1). This partnership aims at facilitating and promoting the growth of Italian Companies in the United States of America, with a particular focus on the Midwest area.

As a matter of fact, the USA are the third main commercial partner for Italy, with 9,2% of the interchange (after Germany and France) and the seventh provider, with 3,8% of the market. According to a Promos elaboration based on Istat data, during the first six months of 2019 Italy has exported to the USA 22 billion euros of goods, over 1,5 billion more than in the same months of 2018 (+7,7%).

At a regional level, Lombardy is in first place, with over 5 billion euros in exports (+10.2%), and it represents over a fifth of the Italian total, followed by Emilia Romagna, with 3.2 billion (+3.4%), and Veneto, with 2,7 billion (+8.8%). Lazio and Piedmont also exceed 2 billion exports. The top cities in the ranking are Milan, with more than 2 and a half billion euros (+12.4%), Latina, with 1.6 billion and a significant growth (it was 115 million in 2018) and Turin, with 1,1 billion (+14.5%). Bologna, Modena and Florence are also over 800 million, followed by Vicenza (+4.2%) and Bergamo (+20.9%). Other cities in Lombardy are in the top 20: Brescia is in 10th place with 553 million, Monza in 19th with 324 million (+5.6%) and Varese in 20th with 295 million (+16.5%).

For this reason, we at the Chamber offer a wide range of services in the field of business internationalisation. In particular, our team of experts is specialized in conducting market research, providing support in the opening of offices, logistic centers and production plants on-site, scouting and organizing B2B and B2C meetings, providing legal and administrative assistance, giving support on marketing and promotional activities.

Our rich network of relationships and collaborations, developed over the years, offers to the Italian and American companies the creation of concrete commercial opportunities, through strategic and purposeful partnerships. Our networking and B2B services are organized and managed to facilitate new connections and relationships between members.

Thanks to this agreement, members of the Chamber will be able to benefit from privileged access to the bank’s services and a direct channel with the branch network.

In turn, Bank customers will be entitled to a free exploratory interview with the team of the Chamber and a 20% discount on all the services we offer including the membership.
