Exports are heading in a fairly balanced percentage towards European and non-European markets. This means that in recent years Italian companies have focused on the development of emerging markets. In the first half of 2020 exports to the EU-27 (except UK) reached almost 12.5 billion euros, sales to the rest of the world accounted for more than 9.6 billion.
