Target Countries

South Korea

South Korea represents the fourth largest economic power in Asia after Japan, China and India. Choosing the Korean market can be a strategic decision for several reasons.   South Korea has a stable constitutional state and an active presence on the international stage. The country has shown consistent and progressive economic growth. The labor force is highly skilled and innovation-oriented. It has one of the most advanced infrastructure networks in the world. South Korea has the world's largest network of free trade agreements.

United States of America

The United States represents one of the most important markets for Italian exports, both in terms of size and in terms of its capacity to absorb "Made in Italy" products, which are highly appreciated by local consumers and are synonymous with quality in all sectors.

For foreign companies, the United States represents a great opportunity to gain visibility at an international level and thereby conquer new markets. With a share of 10.4% (2022), the United States is the second largest sales market for Italian goods.

United Kingdom

The United Kingdom market offers numerous opportunities for businesses looking to expand internationally. It is one of the world's leading economies with a developed financial sector, a strong manufacturing base and a dynamic services market. Despite Brexit, the UK maintains close trade relations with the European Union. The UK has a well-developed infrastructure, including transport, communications and technology. London is a major financial and technology center with a vibrant community of start-ups and investors. The UK legal system is reliable and stable and provides security for investment. The English market can be a strategic choice for companies looking to expand globally.


The project is dedicated to companies that are eager to expand into new markets, develop partnerships, or strengthen their position in the areas that the Outgoing projects cover.
