The Italian Business Group’s Annual Assembly Meeting took place at the residence of IBG’s President, Mr. Bashar Jabban.
After Mr. Jabban’s brief exposition, the board approved the annual activities and financial plan for the year 2014. The Consul General in Jeddah, Dr. Simone Petroni, took the floor renewing his support and appreciation for IBG’s commitment; he then introduced his successor, Dr. Elisabetta Martini, who was due to take over in few months.
With a short and significant speech, Dr. Petroni awarded Mr. Abdullah Binzagr, emeritus member and founder of IBG, the Knighthood of the Italian Republic. The title recognizes his ongoing business relations with Italy.
Fast Auto Technic’s presence was also widely appreciated; as the stunning Maserati brought for display was a perfect example of Italian automotive excellence.
