Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) has partnered with The Indian Chamber of Commerce in Italy (ICCI) to promote CDP Business Matching, the new digital platform connecting Indian and Italian companies.
The tool, developed by CDP in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, allows companies to access a network of selected high-level counterparts and organize virtual B2B meetings to develop strategic business cooperation ranging from agency, commercial and distribution partnerships to industrial partnerships.
Specifically, CDP Business Matching and ICCI are collaborating to promote business ties between Indian and Italian companies in the agricultural machinery, food processing machinery, and cold chain sectors. An introductory webinar and the first virtual B2B meetings were held on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. The initiative was organized under the patronage of the Embassy of Italy in India and the Ministry of Food Industries, Government of India, in collaboration with CONFINDUSTRIA, the All India Food Processing Association (AIFPA) and the Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Association (AMMA).
How it works
By registering for free on the CDP Business matching website (link https://businessmatching.cdp.it/en/welcome) using the promotional code ICCI2022, companies are invited to select their business objectives and describe the ideal business partner they would like to meet.
Registered companies will periodically receive notifications of possible matches and the relative percentage of affinity based on their profile.
It will be possible to view the information on the counterpart and choose whether to accept the proposed matches or not; a virtual meeting can then be arranged in a dedicated and protected space within the platform, with the possibility of requesting a live interpreter.
The platform also offers digital events and webinars to explore markets and topics of interest and provides news, expert interviews, and success stories.
