PALERMO – “Stay in the South” (Resto al Sud) is an initiative backed by Invitalia, Italy’s inward investment agency, aimed at kickstarting the creation of new businesses in the country’s economically-challenged South.

Other key figures slated to appear include Vincenzo Durante, Employment, Incentives and Innovation Manager of Invitalia; Salvatore Malandrino, President of the Regional Commission of the Italian Bank Association (ABI) and Domenico Arcuri, Managing Director of Invitalia.
The event is sponsored by the ABI, the Regional Commission of Sicily and the University of Palermo.
