The activity of the Italian Industry & Commerce in the UAE begins in Sharjah in 1999 as a Piedmont Region - ICE Program Agreement. This is a showroom dedicated to Piedmontese companies, called Italy in Emirates. In 2002 and 2003 the project was expanded nationally and partially funded by the CNA-MiSE Sector Agreement (Ministry of Economic Development). In 2004 the company name changed and the Italian Chamber of Commerce was established in the UAE and Confartigianato entered the Board of Directors, in addition to the CNA founder. However the local legislation does not allow the denomination of Italian Chamber of Commerce, so from that moment it will be called Italian Industry & Commerce office in the UAE.
