English Switzerland has signed a Treaty with the EU on free mobility. From June 2004, this will replace current regulations based on quotas of foreign work force, and will facilitate the access of Italian enterprises to the Ticino market. Evidence found when monitoring the Ticino economy for the period 1980-2002 shows that the opening of the market had largely been anticipated; indeed the regional economies, north and south of the border, had been converging for some two decades at least. The liberalization of the labour market will therefore accelerate an integration process already underway. This paper presents data substantiating our claim based on the characteristics of the trans-border labour market and indicators on both the supply and the demand sides of this specific regional market.
