Introduction

Italy became a nation-state in 1861 when the regional states of the peninsula, along with Sardinia and Sicily, were united under King Victor EMMANUEL II. An era of parliamentary government came to a close in the early 1920s when Benito MUSSOLINI established a Fascist dictatorship. His alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II. A democratic republic replaced the monarchy in 1946 and economic revival followed. Italy is a charter member of NATO and the European Economic Community (EEC) and its subsequent successors the EC and the EU. It has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification, joining the Economic and Monetary Union in 1999. Persistent problems include sluggish economic growth, high youth and female unemployment, organized crime, corruption, and economic disparities between southern Italy and the more prosperous north.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Growth is projected to edge down to 1.4% in 2018 and 1.1% in 2019. Exports and business investment are increasingly driving the recovery. Private consumption growth will moderate due to waning job growth and weaker household purchasing power due to rising inflation. Consumer price inflation is edging up as excess capacity narrows and will accelerate in 2019. The current account surplus is projected to remain high.

The stock of non-performing loans in the banking system has declined markedly from its peak thanks to policies put in place. In 2018, the fiscal stance is projected to be slightly expansionary. Reflecting perceived increased policy uncertainty, government bond yields have risen recently. Possible policy changes by the incoming government are not incorporated in the projection. Priorities should be given to shifting the spending mix towards infrastructure and enhancing targeted anti-poverty programmes to tackle large social and regional divides while boosting growth.
