The second edition of Go International, the fair for export services, will be held in Milan at the Palazzo delle Stelline from 4 to 5 October 2022. Milan and Lombardy are in fact a perfect location to deal with Italian exports and their potential. In the fourth quarter of 2021 Lombard exports grew by a good 10.2% compared to the previous quarter, confirming an exceptional positive post-pandemic trend.
Overall in 2021 Lombardy managed to export goods for a value of 135.9 billion euros, exceeding the previous all-time high of 2019 of 6.6% (year in which regional exports reached 127.5 billion euros) . The strong engine of the recovery is linked to the metals market and their production (+ 34.3% compared to 2020 and + 17.7% compared to 2019), but food products are also growing strongly compared to 2019 (+13 , 8%), chemicals and substances (+ 12.7%) and computers and electronic devices (+ 12.2%). Also positive were rubber and plastics (+ 9.1%), means of transport (+ 2.0%). In line with the pre-crisis result, with only small increases, we find pharmaceutical items (+ 0.7%) and textiles, leather-footwear and accessories (+ 0.4%). These figures give a realistic idea of how essential it is to focus on exports. Go International can concretely help the companies participating in the fair in managing all the processes related to internationalization, as demonstrated by the percentage of satisfaction of the activities involved during the previous edition (450), equal to 96.8%.
