Annual Report 2017 | Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean Area

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

With the 7th MED Annual Report we continue our studies and monitoring of the trend of bilateral trade flows between Italy and the MENA area (Middle East and North Africa), highlighting the competitive position of Italian manufacturing and its penetration capacity in these markets. As emerges in the first part of the book, the commercial exchange with the Area has grown by more than 50% over the last few years despite the socio-political upheaval in some countries on the Southern shore of the Mediterranean and an economic crisis not yet completely overcome. The Mediterranean area is now much more central in the world geo-economy (for example, China’s Belt & Road Initiative in Mare Nostrum or the growing interest of Germany towards Africa) and, in this dynamic and competitive scenario, Italy has the concrete opportunity to become a strategic “bridge” with Europe. In this perspective, the monographic part of the Report is dedicated to the analysis of maritime traffic and portuality, with insights that concern the ZES (Special Economic Zone) instrument, increasingly widespread in the world and which is going to be tested also in Southern Italy thanks to the so-called “Mezzogiorno Decree”, and innovation and research in the agri-food sector in Israel, one of the countries of interest by the SRM Mediterranean Observatory.

Annual Report 2016 | Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean Area

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

With the 6th Report on the Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean, SRM continues its monitoring activity of the trade flows and business relations our Country has with the Mediterranean and Gulf area. Only five years have passed since the first edition of the Report in 2011, but the events occurred in this timeframe – upheavals and political tensions, on the one hand, and unsteady global economic conditions, on the other hand – have caused relevant changes in the trade relations map of Italy with the Med Area. The slowdown of global trade, the still ongoing political crisis in Libya and the sensible decrease of oil price started in 2011, had a significant impact on the numbers of Italian interchange; when adding the growing presence of China in the area, first and foremost with its productions, but also with strong investments in port and logistics infrastructures in the Med & Gulf area, it’s clear how much the competitive arena has changed, becoming undoubtedly more complicated for the Italian system. As the survey highlights, there are new opportunities opening up for Italian companies, for example the Gulf markets, which are interesting both as target areas for some traditional productions of the made in Italy, but also as hubs granting the access to more distant, but highly profitable markets.

Annual Report 2015 | Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean Area

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

After four editions mainly dedicated to the investigation of the intense trade relations of Italy with the countries of the southern and south-eastern Mediterranean shores, and the analysis regarding the Italian companies which invested in this area, the 2015 edition marks a further step forward of SRM’s research. This study, in fact, broadens its view of trade relations, as well as the presence of Italian companies in these markets, to include the dynamics of maritime trade and the importance that some major infrastructure – such as the expansion of the Suez Canal – can have on the entire geo-economic structure of the Mediterranean. This objective analysis led SRM to extend its scope to the Gulf countries which play an increasingly central role, both for their function as maritime-port hub and for the growing relevance of their economies.
Also new is the articulation of the volume that now consists of two parts: a first general part – The economy and trade relations and a second monographic part dedicated to the New development directives and strategic infrastructure: Suez and the Gulf.

Annual Report 2014 Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean Area

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

The Report, this year in its 4th edition, as usual provides an analysis of the relations that Italy has with the countries lining the southern and southeast shore of the Mediterranean basin and it also expands this analysis to the Gulf area in the part which refers to the finance and banking systems. The first part – Economy, trade and businesses – opens with an examination of the trade relations between Italy and its main international competitors within the southern Mediterranean area offering a profile of the most recent economic developments of these countries. In addition, there is an important section dedicated to the study of the presence of Italian companies in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco which is followed by a chapter dealing with the economic situation of the three countries. The second part of the Report – Finance and financial flows – offers a description of the bank and financial systems of both the southern Mediterranean and Gulf countries particularly focusing on Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco. The development of the financial systems in the MENA area has been constant over the last few years, with efficiency and profitability performances which proved better than those of the European banks. Another chapter deals with the analysis of the investment strategies of the Mediterranean and Gulf sovereign wealth funds with particular reference to the investment potentials that are in Italy. The third part – Logistic infrastructures and renewable energies – deals with these two important research topics of SRM’s Mediterranean Observatory and includes a chapter about competitiveness in the Italian port and logistic systems and a contribution to the development of renewable energies that comprises of a focus on the ongoing projects and investments that are required in the coming years.

Annual Report 2011

Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean Area

This volume organises and develops the main research papers produced by the Permanent Observatory on the Economic Relations between Italy and the Mediterranean area. Our research work moves from a broad concept of the Mediterranean, ranging from the North Adriatic to Morocco, and on to all the Southern Rim countries. Part one, entitled “Economy, business, and trade dynamics”, draws a macroeconomic picture of the MENA region, and offers a detailed analysis of Italian trade with the region. Part two, “Financial flows: Sovereign Wealth Funds and migrant worker remittances”, examines the aspects of capital flows existing and entering Italy. Part three, “Infrastructures in the Mediterranean: maritime transport, logistics, and energy networks” analyses maritime traffic flows, port and port hinterland systems and new energy networks and corridors.
