The Sport and Tourism Working Group – STWG, under the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) umbrella, has been established in 2020 merging the Sport Working Group (SWG) and the Italy China Travel Club (ICTC).
This Working Group includes all the companies operating in the sport and tourism sectors, such as the design and engineering studio, sport equipment manufacturers, sport facilities developers, sport-related services companies, operators and promotion agencies, accommodations and service providers and cooperates with Italian private and public tourism sector both in Italy and in China.
The aim is promoting the know-how and the quality of Italian sport companies and products in China and promoting Italy as a travel destination to the Chinese audience.
