  • The Regional Industrial System (2)
  • The composition of the industrial workforce is mainly based on the mechanical industry (38.7%) and wood &furniture (24.6%).
  • Furthermore additional relevant sectors are transport and agro-food.
  • There are four regional industrial districts (clusters), recognized by law, which have an high export level capacity, namely:
  • knive district
  • food district
  • chair district
  • furniture district
