Economic and Social Development

We intend economic development as the promotion of better standards of living and socioeconomic well-being for the benefit of all. We believe it needs to bring the private and the public perspectives together to the benefit of the country and its citizens, involving multiple interventions that span from human capital development to the support to private sector, employment, regional and local competitiveness, innovation, trade, etc.

Economic development has been a major area of Eurecna’s activities from the very beginning.  Eurecna is the international consultancy arm of CNA, the largest Federation of crafts and SMEs in Italy, which counts with more than 9,000 staff working in 1,250 offices throughout Italy providing a broad range of services to member firms. The knowledge and skills developed by CNA include cluster development, innovative financial arrangements and product innovation and are at the basis of the Italian model for business entrepreneurship.

Over more than 20 years, Eurecna has successfully transferred the huge SME-related know-how of CNA to several countries in Central-Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America. We have contributed to the development of the national SME support infrastructure and strategy for competitiveness implementing large EU-funded projects for the SME sector during the pre-accession phase in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania and Romania. More recently, we have been working in the regional and local development sector providing advisory service to set up regional and local development agencies and to build the capacity to undertake participatory planning for regional and local development strategies.

Our main areas of interventions are:

  • Private Sector Development
  • Competitiveness and Innovation
  • Regional and Local Economic Development
  • TVET Reform and Employment Policies
  • Quality, Trade and Export promotion
  • Programme Management Units
  • etc.
