The association’s corporate affairs member Mr Mohamed Wafir said, “Our aim is to promote these specific dishes and cuisines, available exclusively from these islands, in Italy and to improve the number of tourist arrivals to local guesthouses from the country. This will further give a better understanding of these travellers where such culinary delicacies will be available.”
