UNIDO ITPO Italy facilitated the conclusion of an international business partnership agreement between the Italian company WaterView and the Pakistani Skafs, which was officially signed on 22 December 2020.
The dedicated celebration ceremony was held online on 14 January 2021. Hosted by UNIDO ITPO Italy Investment Promotion Expert, Ms. Ester Temperato, and Chief Technical Advisor Mr. Dino Fortunato, the event was opened by the welcome remarks of UNIDO ITPO Italy Head, Ms. Diana Battaggia, and saw the participation of relevant representatives from both companies.
Thanks to a series of matchmaking activities and virtual meetings arranged by UNIDO ITPO Italy in the last months, WaterView Srl – which provides videoanalysis solutions to monitor all weather conditions and detect plumes of smoke – had the opportunity to meet Skafs Pvt Ltd, part of the Engineering and Construction Group Skafs International and operating in high-profile infrastructural projects.
In this framework, the two companies discussed and identified Pakistan’s needs in terms of smoke detection and weather-related issues such as flood and low visibility, and eventually decided to become partner and sign a two-year agreement. This first milestone will pave the way for further business collaborations aimed at transferring Italian innovative technologies to Pakistan and Afghanistan for sustainable local industrial development.
