Dear Members, 


The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) is glad to invite you to attend the event “The Extraordinary Italian taste: Promotion and Protection of Geographical Indications in China”. The seminar will be held at the Auditorium of the Embassy of Italy on Wednesday 15th March 2017, from 11.00 to 18.00.

The event is organized in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in China and the Italian Trade Agency in the occasion of “World Consumer Rights Day” and under the patronage of the European Union Delegation in Beijing. 

The seminar will be divided into three sessions and will feature several speakers. 

The first session will be a legal seminar on GIs Protection in China. The seminar will be held from 11.00 to 13.00, only in English. The aim is to raise awareness among Italian companies on how they can safeguard the GIs in China.
