LEGEMCONFINDUSTRIA INDO-ITALIAN Chamber INDO-ITALIAN Chamber Infrastructure & Building Make it Sustainable
Protocol of Understanding of G.I.C. LEGEM
The first core group of companies (many of whom participated in both the missions in 2011) decides to formalize the mutual commitment to collaborate in realizing LEGEM. The Protocol of Understanding is signed in the office of Confindustria in Rome in the presence of representatives of the Indo-Italian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and of Confindustria. Thus G.I.C. (Group of Constituent Companies) is born.  It must be emphasized that by signing this agreement, each company is committed to providing resources and know-how to others so as to work together to fine-tune the Strategic Plan Guidelines Document (DISP) which will include the operational objectives of LEGEM, but most importantly the inputs for carrying out the successive phases of the project's cycle (feasibility study, preliminary project, executive project). Another key point of the Protocol of Understanding is the willingness of companies to provide support on the basis of their specific and complementary competences to be able to make a greater impact on the Indian interlocutors. This point is the concrete proof of the willingness of the companies to become part of an economic project capable of acquiring an important slice of the Indian market.
