The Italian Foreign Ministry on the Way of Reform


For some time now the MFA has sought to equip itself with a more flexible organisational structure with the ability to coordinate the increasingly diverse range of Italian activities abroad. There is a widespread awareness that increased – and increasing – international competition cannot be addressed by individual players acting alone. To meet this challenge, Italy needs to strengthen the “country system” as a whole and promote the economic-financial and cultural components of that system, in close and constant coordination with the European Union.
