The integration of French and Italian economic sectors: strategic and political aspects
2005 - 2005
Bilateral relations between Italy and France are going through a delicate and important phase. The intensive integration between several Italian and French economic sectors (energy, insurance, finance, banking, air transport, military shipbuilding, microelectronics), the considerable transalpine presence in the Italian economy, along with the competitive aspects that derive from this situation, make for a series of great changes. IAI intends to monitor the evolution of relations between these two countries, starting from an analysis of this integration in order to study the political and strategic aspects in greater depth, through an ad hoc research. The results of this project have been published in a volume of the IAI Quaderni. English series and presented to the public at a conference in Rome on April 4, 2005.
