Are the Emerging Economies a Threat to the Italian Competitiveness? This work deals with the issue of the Italy’s competitiveness in relation to the trade dynamism and performance of the new emerging Southern economies: China, India, Brazil, and South Africa (Cibs). Having examined trade patterns, main competitors and trade specialization of the countries analyzed, we go on to perform Cluster Analysis to capture the entire set of trade complementarities and specializations of the global trading system. The empirical results contribute to partially mitigating the pessimistic view that sees evolution of the emerging economies’ trade specialization as a potential threat to our country, with the significant exception of China.
