The AGM was opened by Riccardo Smimmo, Deputy Head of Mission, who highlighted the importance of the ICCIUK and its role within the Sistema Italia.

The ICCIUK President Alessandro Belluzzo highlighted the difficulties faced by the Chamber in the past few years and the importance of the business relations between Italy and the UK. The President also mentioned how nonetheless the members community is registering a constant growth increasing its numbers in terms of new members as well as renewals. He then thanked the Chamber’s staff, Councillors and members for their constant engagement and support of the Chamber’s activities.

The ICCIUK President then started to present the items on the agenda, and ask the members to approve the 2023 accounts, the Auditors’ report and report presented to the Italian Ministry for Enterprises and Made in Italy.

During the AGM, ICCIUK Members were asked to vote to approve the 2024 budget and the report for the current year to 31 December 2024.

ICCIUK members were also asked to vote on the re-election of some of the Councillors of the Chamber’s Board.

The last formal resolutions were to confirm Ashings Chartered Accountants as ICCIUK Auditors until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting, and the continuation of Maurizio Ghirga, Chief Representative at Bank of Italy and Tony Castagnetti, Founder at Belluzzo Audit, as ICCIUK Honorary Auditors.
