Ecco il commento che si e’ beccato l’Italia:
On a less positive note, Italy (ranked 49th) is down by three places this year.The country continues to do well in more complex areas measured by the GCI, particularly the sophistication of its businesses environment.
Italy is ranked 21st for its business sophistication, producing goods high on the value chain using the latest production processes, thanks also to strong business clusters.
However, Italy’s overall competitiveness performance is held back by some critical structural weaknesses in the economy.The labor market remains among the most rigid in the world, with Italy ranked 129th out of 134 countries for its labor market flexibility, creating a large hindrance to job creation. Another problematic area is its weak public finances and extremely high levels of public indebtedness (ranked 123rd on this indicator), related to the inefficient use of public resources (it is ranked 128th for the wastefulness of government spending).
Other institutional weaknesses are its high levels of corruption and organized crime and a perceived lack of independence within the judicial system, which increase business costs and undermine investor confidence.
Tutto bene, mancano riferimente alla mancanza di strumenti che spingano l’ innovazione e finanziamenti per la ricerca.
