The "Invest in Milan" portal seeks to be a useful tool for companies interested in evaluating making an investment in Milan. Investors can find information on the competitive advantages of the Metropolitan Area of Milan, investment opportunities, free services which they can take advantage of, links to further deepen their knowledge of the territory. The project emerged from a collaboration between Assolombarda and Invest in Lombardy, the department responsible for attracting foreign investment in Lombardy that is promoted by Regione Lombardia, Unioncamere Lombardia and Promos Italia S.c.r.l. - The new Italian Agency for Internationalisation of the Chamber System.
