Italian desk

Our dedicated Italian Desk in Johannesburg provides assistance to Italian companies wanting to operate or to expand their footprint in Africa.

A bridge to Italian investments in Africa 

Realising the appeal of the African continent as an Italian investment destination, we’ve joined forces with PwC Italy to form PwC Africa’s Italy desk. In line with our aim of servicing our clients from strategy through execution, our dedicated Italian Desk provides assistance to Italian companies wanting to operate or to expand their footprint in Africa, and to local companies and entrepreneurs interested in the Italian market.

The Italian Desk in Johannesburg is staffed by Italian-speaking specialists who work closely with colleagues in PwC offices around the continent. Our in-depth knowledge and understanding of both African and Italian operating environments enables us to put ourselves in our clients’ shoes to offer tax, legal, assurance and advisory solutions for every business challenge.

Our team liaises closely with the “Sistema Italia”, composed of the embassies of Italy in Africa, the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and the various Italian chambers of commerce.
