The exports from Tuscany have continued to grow at a good pace during 2015, despite the increasing uncertainty of the external environment. In fact, the aggregate figure records a +3.2, resulting especially from the oil price trend. The performance of Tuscany, net of the contribution of the oil and precious metals sectors, has improved, registering an increase of +4.8% compared to 2014, which is above the national data.
However, the first half of 2016 experienced a slowdown in the export dynamics, especially net of the trade of precious metals. A particularly negative impact derives from the bad performances of the Arezzo leather and jewellery sectors, as well as those of the shipping and car parts industries.
