c/o Nctm Studio Legale, Via delle Quattro Fontane, 161 - 00184 Rome
This initiative is part of Canada's participation in the G20 Climate & Energy Ministerial meeting, of which Italy holds the presidency this year.
The dialogue is part of the existing collaboration between Canada and Italy in the energy sector within the international organizations of which they are part and in the context of the Joint Declaration signed by the two Governments in 2014. The latter recognized the need to strengthen and expand commercial relations and scientific and technological collaboration in the energy sector for the purpose of energy security and responsible use of resources.
The announcement by Honourable Seamus O'Regan, Minister of Natural Resources Canada, on the Hydrogen Strategy for Canada launched in December 2020, proposes to resume the dialogue between Canada and Italy with the aim to discover the vast opportunities offered by Canada in terms of internationalization for Italian companies and to raise awareness of the Canadian technological capabilities which have been at the forefront of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen sector.
