The American Chamber of Commerce in Italy
The American Chamber of Commerce in Italy (AmCham) is a private, not-for-profit organisation. It aims to develop and promote economic and cultural relations between the United States and Italy.
In addition to his role at De Tullio Law Firm, Managing Partner Giandomenico De Tullio is a regional representative for Puglia at AmCham.
Puglia – a dynamic region
“Puglia has one of the most intense economies of Italy and dynamic industrial production. It includes strategic companies which now form an integral part of the national system. And, in many cases, groups of international importance. As proof of the region’s competitive strength, it is enough to observe the region’s exports. In 2014, Puglia led export in the south of Italy with a +9.4% growth and it was the first region in Italy in terms of growth percentage”.
From agriculture to aerospace
Puglia is home to factories and companies belonging not only to industries traditionally associated with the region, such as agriculture but also to steel, automotive, aerospace, furniture and clothing. As to the agricultural sector, Puglia is the region with the highest Italian olive oil production levels, at 36,6%. It supplies hundreds of oil mills all over Italy. The agricultural development model of the region aims to combine competitiveness with economic and environmental sustainability”.
“Puglia features as the second Italian region for energy production from fossil and renewable sources. It is the main Southern Italian region for photovoltaic installations and wind power generation”.
A broad mix of SMEs and multinationals
“The cornerstone of the whole industrial system in Puglia is represented by over 80 sites of about 100 medium and large foreign and national groups. These companies employ over 40.000 direct employees. Alongside these large foreign and national groups, SMEs and artisanal enterprises permeate the whole regional economic system, producing and supplying goods to a wide variety of sectors.”
