The COMITES is a democratically elected committee which works
to identify and support the needs of the Italian community
in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The COMITES, (Committee for Italians Abroad), works with the CGIE and the Italian
Foreign Ministry to assist Italian citizens in dealing with diplomatic and consular services.
The COMITES is composed of 12 members elected by Italian citizens resident in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
