The Catalonia Trade & Investment office in London is directed by Lluís Polo. Trained in law, he has extensive experience in international business promotion, especially in the field of design and textiles. The Milan office opened in 1988 and is also staffed by a further two consultants.
The Milan office has promoted more than a hundred projects since early 2015 and places major emphasis on the design industries. The Italian economy is, however, highly diverse. The ACCIÓ office also works on many company projects in the fields of food, the experience industries, industrial systems and in chemicals, energy and resources.
The services most frequently contracted by Catalan companies at the Milan office involve assistance in starting business on the Italian market: the search for customers, suppliers and distributors, market research and scheduling business meetings.
