ROME – Recovery is a must-win challenge

“The recovery from this pandemic situation is a must-win challenge, which we can succeed at only if we work together”, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told Italian industry representatives during the Confindustria Assembly on Tuesday (29 September).

“We’ll enact a new normative instrument for our recovery and resilience plan. We need a specific structure that guarantees transparency and a certain timing”, the prime minister added.

According to Confindustria leader Carlo Bonomi, “Italy needs a new pact”.

“All actions and policies in the next few years need to be focused on maximising the role of  businesses and work systems so they become catalysts for development,” he added.

Bonomi also called for “a new and comprehensive reform of the social safety,” noting that Confindustria had sent “a proposal to the government and trade unions, detailing the measures we deem appropriate to reassess the parts of the system that don’t work.”
