Dear Members and Friends,
I am very pleased to say that, notwithstanding the enduring restrictions, in 2021 the ITCCK was able to honor its mission in a sustainable way.
I am particularly proud to say that, while forced to carry out many activities with limitations,
we managed to launch a few initiatives for the future development of the ITCCK, amongst which:
- new mobile-friendly ITCCK website allowing the geo-localization of our Members (see sections where-to-eat or where-to-buy)
- web-based recruitment platform, The Italian Job, aimed to bridge job seekers and job opportunities within the increasing Italo-Korean community
- more inclusive Membership Structure reflecting the different nature and goals of our Members (now also including Individual Members)
In 2022 we will continue to work on some ITCCK distinctive activities such as the Italian Food Festival, the Ospitalita’ Italiana Awards
(from this year extended also to Gelato and Pizza),while new activities will be added, like the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) project.
Thanks to the progressive release if social distancing, many activities will likely resume to their original form, like B-t-B delegations and meetings,
as well as the periodical Aperitivo Italiano.
For this hard work and the achievements, I would like to thank our Secretary General Jacopo Giuman and his devoted staff, our Board of Directors for their
passionate and active contributions, His Excellency the Italian Ambassador Federico Failla and the Italian Embassy, for their continuing support and friendship,
all the Italian Chamber and Government Institutions for their guidance and, last but not least, our loyal and increasing Members whose satisfaction
remains our ultimate scope.
Looking forward to a brighter and even more connected future together!
ITCCK: Italy and Korea, closer than ever.
