Abstract

Against the background of the literature on the opportunities and threats arising from EuroMed Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), we analysed the qualitative data obtained from in-depth interviews with opinion leaders of the sector and the secondary data for the quantitative analysis with the use of a Revealed Comparative Advantage index (RCA). The results indicate the competitiveness of food products from Campania compared to those of other Italian regions towards Southern Mediterranean Countries (SMCs). In the medium term a gradual intensification of trade is expected, increasingly linked to production specialisation and uniqueness of agro-food products.
