Emilia-Romagna Region

An internationally oriented region

Internationalisation, trade, foreign relations: the Emilia-Romagna economy is proud of its long tradition of being open to the rest of the world, by being, on one hand, the birthplace of well-known brands that are sold all over the world and, on the other, by attracting the head offices of big foreign multinationals to the region.

For the Region, internationalisation firstly means trade with foreign markets, to be increased also through production agreements and investment abroad. This is why Emilia-Romagna is one of the leading italian regions in terms of its level of exports.

Emilia-Romagna, with 25 thousand exporting companies, is the leading italian region for export value per capita and the third for total exports. The regional production system is highly export-oriented: regional imports total 32.4 billion euro while exports amount to 56.1 billion (Istat-Coeweb, 2016).

Exported goods and services from Emilia-Romagna represent 13.5% of italian exports. A significant figure, considering that the region's companies represent 7.9% of the national total.

Some specific sectors have a high share of exports at national level.

Exports of regional tiles and ceramics are worth more than 94.0% of the national total. Also, about one fourth of italian exports of ‘agricultural machinery’, ‘other general purpose machinery’ and ‘tubes, pipes, hollow profiles and related fittings’ and one fifth of ‘wearing apparel’, come from Emilia-Romagna (2015).

Regional exports of ‘meat and meat-based products’ amount to 38.3% of the national total, while regional exports of ‘motor vehicles’ amount to 17.1% of the national total.
