Piccola Industria, the Organization of Confindustria (the General Confederation of Italian Industry) aimed to promote the development and growth of SMEs, organizes the National Day of Small and Medium Enterprises – PMI DAY every year since 2010.
This is an open day for Confindustria SMEs, focused on students and teachers. Its goal is to tell the new generations about the business world, its values, and the opportunities it could offer through guided tours inside the companies.
During this day, young people have the opportunity to visit a Italian company, to learn through directly from the entrepreneurs about its history and objectives, to see closely how the business is carried out.
Thanks to organizational support of local Italian Researcher Associations, these tours take place all over U.S. and involve hundreds of companies and thousands of students accompanied by their teachers. Tours are also open to the participation of local administrators and journalists.
Even this year, Miami Scientific Italian Community, in collaboration with The Embassy of Italy in Washington DC, ABROAD TO the Community of Italian Companies, MAYAC, ODLI the Organization for the Development of Italian Studies, ORGOGLIO BRESCIA and Texas Scientific Italian Community, has been charged to organizing and selecting partners for Confindustria PMI DAY in the United States.
