Long one of Europe’s most-storied economic engines, Veneto continues to lead Italy in a wide variety of sectors. From its centuries-old textiles, machinery, and sophisticated manufacturers to its world-famous wine and agribusiness firms, Veneto’s nearly half-million small- and medium-sized companies help the region account for 10% of Italian GDP, still the world’s eighth-largest economy, making its EUR162-billion economy the envy of the country.

Sectors under the microscope in this 48-page report include industry, viticulture, sports equipment, transport, health, and education. The publication also features dozens of interviews, including:

  • Luca Zaia, President, Regione Veneto
