Italian Prime Minister, Prof. Mario Monti has recently addressed a personal Endorsement to AIESEC Alumni Italy.
Prime Minister Monti wrote:  “Never before, have the institutional objectives of AIESEC to help the younger generation and promote professional success been so important for the social and economic environment. 
Personally, I do remember with special affection and joy and a bit of nostalgia my time as an AIESEC member as a university student. 
I wish you all the very best for your future endeavours and activities of the Association.”
Mr Mario Monti is the 54th and current Prime Minister of Italy and also the Minister of Economy and Finance.
