It is noted by theState nel report “Productivity measures. Years 1995-2022“. The negative dynamics of labor productivity follows a long period of growth, albeit slow, 0.5% on average in the years 2014-2022.

In this period of time, it has been registered in the EU 27 growth of 1.3%. Italy’s dynamics were lower than that of Germany (1.1%) but higher than that of France (-0.1%) and in line with that of Spain. In short, Italian industriousness is still lagging behind many countries.
