A year with a strong currency – Ticino quo vadis?
The titles on IRE’s PanelCODE newsletter (www.panelcode.ch) mentioned below reflect the reaction of Ticino’s entrepreneurs to the abandonment of the fixed exchange rate as of January this year, passing from unresponsiveness, to shock, to pessimism, to cautious optimism:
February: "The positive trend in the number of jobs created continues."
March: "National GDP growth of 2% in 2014 confirmed, but the currency shock will produce a sharp slowdown in 2015."
May: "In the second quarter of 2015, the creation of new jobs in Ticino will slow down."
June: "Less vigorous growth expected nationwide, but the more negative scenarios can be excluded."
August: "Surprising creation of new jobs in Ticino: the employment increased by 1.6% in the second quarter of 2015 and unemployment reached record lows."
Based on this progression, confronti-economia 2015 will propose a detailed analysis of the current conditions of Ticino economy, opening to a discussion with researchers and professionals operating in the different production realities of our region.
The program will include a first part dedicated to presentations by IRE researchers, regarding world economic trends and the challenges and the opportunities that this conditions generate for Ticino economy. The event will continue with a panel discussion made up of institutional and economic operators.
