[Autom. eng. transl.] The 2016 Report on the Emilia-Romagna agri-food system represents an important contribution to the knowledge of a fundamental sector of the regional economy, a useful tool for operators and a guide for the policies of local authorities. The Report opens with two chapters that describe, on the one hand, the international scenario and, on the other, the community and national policies for the agro-food sector, which modify the scenario in which operators will be called to move from 2015 to 2020. The main economic changes in the regional agri-food system occupy the central part of the Report, with four chapters dedicated to agriculture: production and profitability of the sector, crop production, livestock production, credit and use of productive factors. These chapters examine the trends that have characterized regional agriculture during 2016. Subsequently the other relevant aspects of the regional agri-food system are tackled starting from the food industry, with cyclical dynamics and some structural insights on employment; the chapter on foreign trade shows the weight of the region in exports and imports of agricultural and food products, while that on food distribution focuses on the strategies of distribution companies; the chapter on food consumption highlights the evolution and composition of food spending at national and regional level. The volume presents, in the following chapters, the description of interventions and policies at regional level and of the Rural Development Program 2014-2020. The Report concludes with a chapter dedicated to the activities of the regional chamber system in favor of the agri-food supply chain.
