In recent years, Italy has experienced a modest economic recovery resulting in an average growth of 1.1% between 2015 and 2018.

And there have also been other encouraging improvements, such as the shift of Italian export industries to higher value added products.
Today, the global economy is facing serious headwinds. According to our latest Economic Outlook released earlier this month, global growth is projected to further decrease from 3.6% in 2018 to 3.3% in 2019 and to 3.4% in 2020. Trade and investment growth remain sluggish and the large increase in inequality many countries experienced before the crisis persists.
