For American companies, the Italian market, among Europe’s largest, is attractive in numerous sectors and is an important element of any comprehensive export strategy in Europe.

At Mission Italy, the U.S. Commercial Service, the U.S. Office of Agricultural Affairs, the U.S. Office of Defense Cooperation and the Economic Section work to promote the export of U.S. goods, services and technology in today’s global marketplace.

  • The U.S. Commercial Service is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration and assists U.S. companies exporting goods and services, and expanding their business opportunities in the Italian market. Our customized services include identifying market information and prospects, finding and vetting potential representatives and partners, and facilitating participation in Italian trade shows and events. We help level the playing field through project and market-access advocacy and business facilitation, and support SelectUSA activities that encourage job-creating Italian investment in the United States.

The Foreign Agriculture Service is also responsible for agricultural market intelligence via its Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN), international agricultural policy and trade issues, global agricultural issues, including food security and climate change, capacity building, and other assistance programs.

    The process through which new ideas are generated and successfully introduced in the marketplace — is a primary driver of U.S. economic growth and national competitiveness. Likewise, U.S. companies’ use of trademarks to distinguish their goods and services from those of competitors represents an additional support for innovation, enabling firms to capture market share, which contributes to growth in our economy. The granting and protection of intellectual property rights is vital to promoting innovation and creativity and is an essential element of our free-enterprise, market-based system.
