AGRICULTURE

A period of political instability in those countries

geographically close to Europe has definitely played

a decisive role in the movement of manufacturers

to looking to new horizons. In addition to the two

economies considered most stable – Morocco and

South Africa – there is great interest in the emerging

economies such as Mozambique, but a large obstacle

remains the poor currencies (dollars-euro) that make

international transactions difficult.

Italy, a source of excellence in technology for

agriculture, given the geographical location is

definitely the first port of call for these states, and with

whom an intense cultural exchange is taking place as

a result of the ethnoscape, that is to say the flow of

people in movement due to globalisation.
