Established only a few months since the affirmation and broad consensus in New Zealand which has developed out of Italy's participation in the America's Cup, the Chamber - promoted in agreement with the Embassy of Italy in Wellington - has also as its objective that of consolidating and further developing the strong gro wth of Italian exports which took place last year (in excess of 11.7% according to the Italian Institute of Statistics ISTAT with a surplus of around 50 billion Lire), and is set in a context of expectations of cooperation and of strong demand for Italian goods and technology and will also be able to create spaces and opportunies for investment in the New Zealand market also in the perspective of incentives launched by the Government led by Helen Clark.

Dr Piero Sella, an Italian lawyer resident in Wellington, has been appointed President of the Chamber whilst the position of Honorary President is conferred on the Ambassador of Italy to New Zealand, Roberto Palmieri.
