Emilia-Romagna top European large region for FDI strategy



18/02/2022 - FDI Intelligence, the Financial Times foreign investment specialist division, published the "European Cities & Regions of the Future 2022/23" report on the attractiveness of cities and regions in Europe.


Emilia-Romagna ranks 7th among the Large European regions for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) strategy. The region is first in Italy together with the Lombardy.



The regional vision to attract FDIs relies on qualified employment, innovation, sustainability, integration with regional supply/value chains. Overall objectives include also ecologic and digital transition and have been shared in the Pact for Labour and Climate signed in 2020 by 55 regional stakeholders. Specialised clusters collaborate with a vibrant innovation ecosystem: we are the 1st Italian region for innovation (RIS 2021) and our advanced manufacturing keeps together mature clusters and new perspectives (EVs, Aerospace, Data valley, etc.). Talents are provided by universities and training institutes, with strong attention and new initiatives to attract them (e.g. IT-ER International Talents in Emilia-Romagna). The regional law for the “Promotion of Investments” - in accordance with the new S3 Strategy – keeps on boosting R&D investments ensuring reliable time-frames. Access to international markets is another key asset (1st Italian region for export per capita). Our contact point (https://www.investinemiliaromagna.eu/en/who_we_are/contact_point.asp) is ready to facilitate and support the investments along with a collaborative business-oriented PA.
