confronti autunno 2017

confronti autunno 2017 aims to analyse and discuss the competitive conditions of Ticino in an international scenario. Special emphasis will be given to the description of trade relations and links with the border regions, to the trend of a strategic factor, such as the electricity market and, finally, to the evolution of human capital, both on the demand and the supply side. As usual, researchers, policymakers and industry representatives will be involved, discussing the current situation and outlooks of the economy of our canton.

The program includes presentations by the speakers from IRE-USI, which will illustrate various aspects of the Ticino economy. The second part of the morning will be devoted to the comparison with other economic contexts. In particular, the production system of the neighbouring Lombardy and the trends that characterize the economy of Europe and Eurozone will be examined.
