The regional Union of the Chambers of Commerce of Emilia-Romagna brings together all 8 Chambers of Commerce in the region (Bologna, Ferrara, Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Ravenna, Reggio Emilia and Romagna -Forlì-Cesena and Rimini). It was founded in 1965 with the aim of promoting and implementing initiatives to favour the growth and promotion of the economy and productive sectors of the regional area, and to provide backing and coordination for the activities of member Chambers.
Unioncamere Emilia-Romagna, together with other regional Unions, the Italian Union of Chambers of Commerce, the Italian Chambers of Commerce and their instrumental bodies, makes up the Italian Chamber of Commerce system. Also part of the Italian Chambers of Commerce system are the Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad and foreign Chambers of Commerce in Italy, legally recognised by the State.
Unioncamere Emilia-Romagna operates in a fast-changing regional area, helping the Chambers of Commerce and, along with them, companies and their associations, to face the challenges created by changes in the outside reference context.
