Economy

Lugano is Ticino's economic motor; 25% of the Canton's Gross Domestic Product is generated in Lugano whilst the Lugano region produces 50%.

The city’s economy has developed during different historical periods. Nowadays, all economic sectors are well integrated and enjoy significant synergies with positive effects on other sectors; this underpins the city's economy and its financial strength.

The New Lugano project aims to enhance and promote this fluid, multifaceted, high-potential economy, in part through direct intervention; it provides some 30,000 jobs in the City of which around 20,000 in the financial centre.
