Last 28 July  the XXXIV ICE Report 2019-2020 and the 2019 Istat-ICE Yearbook on internationalization were presented: both (link) show us the particular time that we are living because of COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting crisis.

This presentation was the opportunity to update present trade and economic dynamics for Italy: indeed, after several years of growth, in 2020 export has been heavily conditioned from the pandemic evolution. Since May there has been a recovery, however, the uncertainties linked to the health crisis continue to weigh on Italian export. Conscious of the Italian export potential, that will be a key factor in crisis exit, the Italian Government already allocated more than 1 billion euros to companies in the Export Pact and financially reinforced the SIMEST incentive system in favour of Italian companies, helping them to internationalize and to restart and strengthen themselves in the world.  

Finally, it has been announced that the new single portal on export incentives will be online within the month.

Lignano Sabbiadoro is the pilot area in Friuli Venezia Giulia for the project RESPONSe -Strategies to adapt to climate change in Adriatic regions, financed by the Programme Interreg Italy-Croatia, which supports the coastal municipalities of the Adriatic by promoting intelligent governance of risks deriving from climate change.
A questionnaire is dedicated to the citizens of Lignano Sabbiadoro and it aims to investigate how the impacts of climate change are perceived in the Adriatic region and in Lignano in particular. The questionnaire is made up of questions that ask to provide an opinion on some aspects related to climate change and lifestyle. The analysis of the questionnaires, the collection and analysis of meteorological and oceanographic data, together with meetings with local communities, will help to define an action plan tailored to the specific characteristics of the territory of six Adriatic coastal cities, among which we find Lignano Sabbiadoro.

The citizens of Lignano Sabbiadoro can answer the questionnaire by clicking here.
