The positive sign distinguishes all the regions and all the macro-areas of the country, with Lazio highlighted in terms of growth rate compared to the previous quarter (+0.44%) thanks to the push from Rome (+0.5%).
Slight recovery in the vitality of the Italian entrepreneurial system in the summer quarter. Between July and September the Chamber of Commerce business register – based on Movimprese, the quarterly analysis conducted by Unioncamere and InfoCamere – he noted a positive balance of 15,407 assets economic (+0.26% compared to the end of June), as the difference between 59,236 new registrations and 43,8299 cessations of activity.
In absolute terms, the result for the quarter reflects a limited vitality of the entrepreneurial system: the balance is below the average of the last ten years and the two flows of openings and closures are among the least brilliant of the period. The positive sign distinguishes all the regions and all the macro-areas of the country, with Lazio highlighted in terms of growth rate compared to the previous quarter (+0.44%) thanks to the push from Rome (+0.5%).
In absolute terms, however, the greatest expansion of the entrepreneurial base concerned Lombardy (+3,334 companies equal to a growth rate of 0.35%), where Milan achieved a performance (+0.49%) in line with that of the country’s capital. Almost a quarter of the balance is the prerogative of the construction sector (4,213 more companies than at the end of June, equal to a growth of 0.5%) but the highest rate is noted for professional, scientific and technical activities (+1.1% corresponding to 2,597 more activities in the quarter). The accommodation and catering activities are also highlighted: +2,825 units, corresponding to a growth of 0.62% compared to the end of June.
The trade and manufacturing sectors are at a standstill, both with a growth rate of less than 0.1% while (unique among all sectors) that of agriculture, forestry and fishing ends up in the negative (-0.1%). One company in three (19,929) was founded as a joint-stock company which, also in this quarter, confirmed itself as the most dynamic organizational formula (+0.68% growth rate, equal to a balance between entries and exits which stands at 12,658 units, 82% of the entire quarterly balance).
In absolute terms, the individual business (with 35,531 registrations in the quarter) remains the main organizational form chosen by new entrepreneurs but, compared to the 31,596 closures recorded in the period, it contributes to the quarterly budget with only 3,935 units (equal to a rate of quarterly growth of +0.13%).
