Italian North-Western territories
were the most affected by the export slowdown

Export data available in Exportpedia1 show a significant deterioration in export performance of the North-West territories: in the area only 32% of provinces report a growth in export trends (quota already sharply dropped from 85% to 56% in the previous quarter).

Whilst the North-Eastern territories
were only slightly affected.

The export slowdown in the North-Eastean territories was less pronounced, with a majority (59%) of provinces still growing in the year-over-year trends, but fewer than three months earlier (68%) and, above all, than Q4-2018 (86%).

Definitely the most widespread growth in export performance is reported in the Central region

The provinces of Central Italy showed the greatest resilience: 68% is the share of Central territories which recorded a y-o-y export growth in Q2-2019 (which is even higher than in the previous quarter - 64% - and in line with Q4-2018).

In South Italy, provinces that showed an y-o-y export increase in Q2-2019 are 53%. This result is in line with the previous one, but lower than the result achieved in Q4-2018 (61%).
