Washington: Mr. Stefano Beltrame, First Counselor, and Head of the Economic, Commercial and Scientific Affairs Office of the Italian Embassy, discusses US-Italy economic relations and the growth in trade in defense and aerospace in this Finmeccanica Podcast.
Counselor Beltrame is well qualified to represent Italy in trade and economic matters. He has served in the Italian Army, worked for two American multinational companies, and held a number of diplomatic postings abroad.
In this Podcast discussion, Counselor Beltrame talks about the three “F’s that dominate the perception of Italian products in the U.S. The three F’s are Ferrari, Food and Fashion. But today, high technology holds an increasingly large share of Italian products in the U.S., and machinery, not one of the three F’s, is the largest export segment of all.
