Why invest in Italy
It is highly probable that you are one of the many people who love Italy, a country full of natural and cultural wonders, boasting millenniums of history, and motherland of iconic products which contributed to create the “Italian style” appreciated worldwide. Moreover, Italy is a great choice for your journey, the perfect place to live in. For all these reasons and much more, maybe you are considering to invest in Italy.
Italy is ranked the 3rd largest national economy in the Eurozone, the 8th in the world. The national market comprehends 60 million people with access to 500 million consumers in the European Union, as well as 270 million from North Africa and the Middle East. Also, the Italian manufacturing sector is the 2nd strongest in Europe thanks to the extraordinary know-how of the companies operating in machinery and automation, fashion and design, food and cooking. Our researchers and research institutes are prominent in many areas of knowledge and more than 20 Italian universities are among the 500 best in the world. In conclusion, no other country could provide this great potential and the same quality of life!
2017. Italy’s three-spot rise to 13th ties for the second-largest positive gain in this year’s Index. This strong gain comes despite mixed macroeconomic indicators and political volatility after the country’s December 2016 referendum. The economy grew by a sluggish 0.9 percent in 2016, and the IMF projects growth of just 0.7 percent and 0.8 percent in 2017 and 2018, respectively. More positively, separate reports by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and Italy’s National Institute for Statistics announced in February that the manufacturing sector, a major driver of the country’s economy, is showing signs of recovery, and the service sector grew at its fastest rate in 14 months.
In 2016 Italy set another record. With its 53 properties of cultural interest listed by UNESCO, it became the country with the highest number of World Heritage sites. Currently, it holds the 16th place in the USNews Overall Best Countries Ranking and reached the 1st place in the Cultural influence sub ranking, surpassing France, U.S.A., Spain, and the UK. Italy, therefore, confirmed its leading role as a cultural guide both in Europe and the world.
