Country Brief - Italy 2017

Italy is starting to recover after a deep and protracted economic crisis, with reforms slowly beginning to take effect. However, the recovery is weak, productivity is low, and structural inefficiencies and poor regulation make it difficult to do business in Italy. The fallout from the economic crisis is still evident with high levels of joblessness and less disposable income. Although the employment market is improving, conditions are still tight and young people, in particular, experience particularly high levels of unemployment, making a job or study programme abroad increasingly attractive options. At the same time, Italy is growing as a study destination, reflecting its strong tourist appeal, and this may strengthen as the higher education sector is modernised and consolidated.
