READ: Modern Agricultural Innovations in the 8th Edition of AgriteQ

Italy’s booth will showcase the innovative technologies of 11 Italian companies in the sectors of agriculture and the environment, virtually. Visitors will be able to learn about Italian high-tech products and services, as well as book virtual business-to-business meetings with the assistance of the Italian Trade Agency.

Ambassador of Italy to the State of Qatar, HE Alessandro Prunas said their attendance at AgriteQ and EnviroteQ underscores the primary role of Italy in green innovation and ecological transition.

Following the round table on Green Economy co-chaired last December by the Qatari Minister of Transport and Communications Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti and Italy’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Luigi Di Maio, he said that Italy is committed to continuing successful cooperation with Qatar on green growth and energy transition.

We are very glad to participate in this exhibition and be able to show the innovative environmental and agricultural solutions which the Italian companies can offer.

Climate diplomacy and youth climate engagement

The Italian exhibition booth will also include an area dedicated to Italy’s role in climate diplomacy and youth climate engagement. In November, Italy is co-hosting in Glasgow the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in partnership with the UK.

Under this partnership agreement, Italy will host in Milan the Pre-COP – the preparatory meeting of ministers – taking place from 30 September to 2 October, and the youth event ‘Youth4Climate: Driving Ambition’ at the end of September.

Italy’s environmental and climate agenda will also hold a central place in its 2021 presidency of the G20 – the international forum that brings together the world’s major economies. A transition towards renewable energies and a green recovery is among the main priorities promoted by the Italian Presidency of the G20. In addition, Italy will also host the Pre-Summit gathering for the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit which will be held in Rome from 19 to 21 July.

Climate change, environment protection, food security and prosperity are all strictly interconnected, according to Ambassador Prunas.

Italy has a great responsibility in contributing to respond to global challenges and in encouraging the transition towards sustainable and greener growth.

The AgriteQ and EnviroteQ exhibition is the ideal framework to introduce Italy’s comprehensive vision and strategy. Italy and Qatar are dedicated partners whose joint commitment can make a difference in leading the way towards energy efficiency, innovative technologies and digitalisation.
