During the past few years, southern European countries have rapidly regained cost competitiveness, as wages in the region have declined compared to those in northern Europe. Are we seeing more productive industries emerge as strong alternatives for other economies? What wage growth have we seen recently in different countries? Will rapid wage growth return in the years ahead, evaporating cost-competitive gains?

Key Topics

  1. The current state of the competitiveness of European economies
  2. A look into which countries and industries are showing strength in southern Europe
  3. The future competitiveness of industries in Mediterranean Europe
