The paper assesses the performance of Made-in-Italy agri-food exports in recent years, making use of the concept of export sophistication and relative indicators. The results show Made-in-Italy agri-food exports enjoying overall good health, their level of sophistication actually being an important element in the capacity to compete on the international markets. Nonetheless, there is also evidence of potential weaknesses in the case of products showing inadequate quality levels, thus exposed to intensification in price competition, as opposed to competition on attributes for which our country faces well-known structural constraints. EconLit Classification: Q170, Q130
Keywords: Agrifood trade, Agricultural competitiveness, Prody index, Competitive advantage, Agrifood made in Italy, Export sophistication
