Leone Moressa Foundation: XII annual report on the economics of immigration – The number of persons entering the labour market is increasing but it remains much smaller than the EU average
On November 14 was presented in Rome the 2022 Annual Report on the Economics of Immigration of the Leone Moressa Foundation that focuses on the analysis of the social and economic dynamics related to immigration in Italy.
After the closure of 2020, due to the pandemic, the number of Residence Permits issued are growing again, reaching more than double the previous year, reaching 274 thousand. In recovery also the entrances for work, that pass from approximately 10 thousand to over 50 thousand.
The first entry channel for immigrants in Italy is family reunification, which represents 44% of the new permits, while entry for work in Italy generally stops at a much lower level than the European average.
7.8% of foreigners carry out qualified and technical activities, while the unskilled workers are 31.7%.
Immigrant workers produce 144 billion in Value Added, making a contributing to GDP equal to 9%. The incidence on GDP increases significantly in agriculture (17.9%), catering (16.9%) and construction (16.3).
