Riccardo Garosci elected as the new President of Aice, the Italian foreign trade association Confcommercio
Before the start of a meeting of the Romanian Distribution Committee – which took place at the Romanian American University’s Senate Hall on November 29, 2019 (see the final picture below) – we have received a message concerning the election of Mr. Riccardo Garosci as the new President of Aice (l’Associazione italiana commercio estero Confcommercio), the Italian foreign trade association Confcommercio (https://www.confcommercio.it/-/aice-riccardo-garosci-nuovo-presidente ). We were happy to hear that the shareholders’ meeting held in Confcommercio Milan elected Mr. Riccardo Garosci by acclamation. Mr. Garosci pledged, among other aspects, for a free trade, without protectionist barriers, but guided by certain and shared rules to protect work and the environment, international trade being a source of growth and job creation.
Mr. Riccardo Garosci was: Vice President of Economic and Monetary Commission of the European Parliament, European Raporteur for „Green Book for European Commerce”, President of the “Commerce and Distribution” Intergroup of the European Parliament (http://www.crd-aida.ro/originsvocation/expresie-recunoasterii-internationale-activitatii-crd/ ); President of Miur Committee “School and Food”, Expo Milano 2015, and Coordinator of the discussion table working on Food Education of the Charter of Milan (Table 14: “Food education: an investment for the future”): “Hunger of Self-Pride” - Before and after EXPO” (“Fame d’Orgoglio: Prima e dopo EXPO”): http://www.crd-aida.ro/2015/11/an-inspired-message-from-riccardo-garosci-hunger-of-self-pride-before-and-after-expo/ . Allow us to also remember within this special context that Romania’s Friend Riccardo Garosci, was an inspiring Keynote Speaker for “SHOP 2015” Conference (May 3-6, EXPO Milano 2015), and he visited Romania’s food productions exhibition stands at Tuttofood (the International Food and Agriculture Show which started two days after the official opening of Expo Milano 2015): http://www.crd-aida.ro/2015/05/shop-2015-tuttofood-and-expo-milano-2015/ .
Mr. Riccardo Garosci is also currently the administrator, in Paris, of the Maison de l’Italie (a structure that refers to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs).
We launched the idea of opening – on the occasion of the General Assembly of our Association that will take place on December 12, 2019 – the procedure relating to the conferment to Mr. Riccardo Garosci the title of Honorary Member of the Romanian Distribution Committee, as a prestigious recognition for his endeavor and achievement.
