Economic figures in brief
In 2019 the province of Treviso suffered a remarkable downturn in exports. The drop in the Treviso’s exports was clear in the first quarter of 2019 (-1.7)and it was confirmed by the negative trend recorded in the first six months of the year (-1.5%) . The opposite trend was observed in all the quarters of 2018: Treviso’s export recorded a growth rate of 6.1%. Compared to 2018 the balance trade provided negative results for about 100 million euro.
The decrease in the Treviso’s exports can be ascribed to the substantial drop in flows towards both the European(deficit falling to 28 millions) and the non-European markets (more than 83 million deficit).
The countries that experienced greatest contraction were Germany (-2,9%,namely the equivalent of 26 million), Romania (-6,4%, -19,5 million), Czech Republic (-9,5% -15 million), China/Hong Kong (-13,1%, -31 million), Turkey (-20,7%, -14 million) and Australia (-18,5%, -14 million).
Meanwhile, the positive trend in exports towards European markets offset the loss in the non-EU markets share. Exports increased towards France (holding on its positive trend), Spain (with a significant recovery: +8,1%, almost +27 million), and the United Kingdom (+6,9%, +31 million): a flare which seems to predict an “anticipated rush” to purchase before the worst happens (no-deal Brexit).
Outside Europe, with the exception of the US (+3,7%, namely almost €18 million, but still a long way off the figures shown the previous year +15,8%) , Russia(+3,6%, +5,1 million) and Canada(+11,3%), all the others non-European markets are being negatively affected by the general decrease in exports of the province of Treviso (negative trends dropped -3.5% against +7.5% of the previous year). Flows towards the Indian market were characterized by positive discontinuity: in 2018 the export value amounted to 32 million euro, while the first half of the year saw an increase of +132% (namely over 74 million).
At a sectorial level, the clear contraction in export experienced by the province of Treviso can be ascribed to the decrease in machinery sales (-4,5%) as a result of the decline in machinery investments. In view of these data, we now take a closer look at sectorial dynamics.
The positive performance in Belluno exports is mainly due to the optical sector, which accounts for more than 72% of provincial exports. The US is the leading market for Belluno optical products (+6.9)and exports increased towards non-European markets (+9,5%). Apart from this exception, Belluno’s productivity growth is rather stagnant (+1,6%).
Overall, the province of Belluno recorded an increase in export values of €130 million against the first half of 2018. Export flows towards non-European markets remain the driving force behind growth bringing the export value to almost €85 million. The Us is the leading market for Belluno’s provincial exports and recorded a sales growth of 13.9% (namely 60 million). Exports also increased towards China/Hong Kong, the second largest import market (+10,7%, +14,5 million). Conversely, figures relating to exports towards Turkey have weakened (-4,3% -2 million), this negative trend was observed in the same period of 2018 (-11.6%).
Among the European markets providing the largest positive contribution to the growth of provincial exports are: Spain (+14,6%; +19,6 million), Germany which is the second-largest import market (+3,1%, +5,6 million), France that recorded a decrease of €3 million (-1,2%) and the United Kingdom (-6,7 million, -4,7%). Positive contributions also come from North Europe: Sweden(+67,6%), Denmark (+54,7%) and Netherlands (+8,3%) contribute positively to growth (17 million).
Although there are still markets marked by interesting growth rates- explains President Pozza –however, when it comes to entering Indian or Canadian markets or maintaining log-term relations with German consolidated industries and seizing opportunities deriving from the dynamic Spanish market, this is the real challenge we face.
That’s why I want to stress the importance of the renovated Nuovo Centro Estero that together with Assocamere and Regione Veneto organized the 28th edition of the Worldwide Convention of Italian Chambers Of Commerce Abroad.
The Convention will take place in the Veneto region, from 26th to 29th October 2019. The event, organized by the Chambers of Commerce of Treviso -Belluno | Dolomites and Venezia Rovigo, has always been an important opportunity to strengthen the relationships among the Italian Chamber of Commerce Abroad network, Institutions and Italian business realities.
As part of the work of the Convention-underlines President Pozza-on the morning of Monday 28 October 2019, at Sala Borsa of the Chamber of Commerce of Treviso - Belluno | Dolomites, will take place the inaugural Conference entitled Industrial collaborations as a new frontier of internationalization.
The event will represent an important moment of confrontation to deal with the topic of attracting foreign investments in Italy which are a key issue of internationalization.
In the end, I am pleased to inform you that the website of the Chamber of Commerce provides an interactive service through which you can consult and visualize all the economic indexes. From this quarter on, the section devoted to international trade data is available. I am sure that as far as internationalization is concerned-concludes President Pozza-the information provided by our website can be a useful tool for everyone.
