Executive Search in Italy – 2019 Outlook

Coalition Fails to Address Key Issues

GDP growth in 2019 is expected to be somewhere between 0.9% and 1.2%, say 1%.

Negotiations between the Italian Government and Brussels has ended up at a deficit worth 2.04% of GDP. This is reportedly not yet finalised.

Italy is suffering an unusual Government coalition that looks quite unstable and is apparently unfit to face key issues such as migrants, terrorism, environment, unemployment.

The forecast and the actual political environment is not encouraging investments and consequently retained executive search nationally and cross-border seems to be close to flat, if not declining.

The European Elections, due in May, may impact the present political internal equilibrium.
