Intesa Sanpaolo is promoting the Southern Italy Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and the Central North Simplified Logistic Zones (SLZ) in Germany to support the development of the Italian port system by attracting foreign investment and strengthening trade relations. 

The Group has also increased to €10 billion the national financing available for new production sites, expansion and modernisation of existing sites and investments in the energy sector in the SEZ and SLZ, as part of the larger €410 billion plan to support the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP).

In these areas, Intesa Sanpaolo has already financed direct and indirect investments of over €5 billion and launched an ad hoc credit line, the S-Loan ZES, which offers a lower interest rate.

The trade mission to Frankfurt met with 25 German companies interested in investing in Italy to develop their business, focusing on a supply chain infrastructure system in which the Mediterranean plays an increasingly strategic role within the new geopolitical context.
