Italy

Situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, Italy provides easy access to the Northern and Southern European markets. It is the second largest exporter of manufactured products in Europe, continuously attracting investments from major foreign companies and trading principally with Germany and France.

The main economic sectors producing remarkable added-value are the food and beverage, fashion and luxury, automotive/engineering, and home furnishing industries. With its priceless cultural and environmental assets, Italy has high potential for more growth in the tourism industry as well.

Country trade view Italy

Italy is a significant player in world trade and its trade is expected to continue to grow over the next five years, albeit slowly. Italy's export of industrial products will rise, with road and transport vehicles in the lead. Exports of the more classically Italian goods, such as leather, textile and other fashion-related goods, are expected to stall. On the import side, Italy is expected to exhibit more demand for foreign chemicals, fuels and basic food products.
