The Economy Minister, Roberto Gualtieri, assured that a special fund was approved in the maneuver to support the Taranto development plan. As for Ilva, he added: "We are defining a very ambitious plan for the revival of Ilva and the steelworks, in the sign of sustainability and work". Minister Stefano Patuanelli reiterated the government's goal of making Ilva di Taranto "the first European example of a sustainable conversion of the steel industry. The State wants to be able to enter the plant – he added – to control and guarantee not only production but also production methods and respect for the environment ". From the government, the unions expect "a clear and clear decision on environmental rehabilitation, on the protection and guarantee of employment levels and production continuity. With or without ArcelorMittal", explained Uilm general secretary Rocco Palombella. The unions do not trust ArcelorMittal because "it is seriously in breach of the 2018 agreement, and the government is asking for" a clear line ".
The government's plan The search to create a defined path is the commitment of these days in the daily contacts between Mise-ArcelorMittal-Commissioners and between the two ministries to which the Prime Minister has entrusted the task of finding a solution that, it seems by now acquired, will have a presence of the State with a quota that allows a check on the effective implementation of the plan. The recovery and development plan, which is emerging, will have an occupational protection network of at least 5 years and would see Taranto's Ilva as an essential part of a broader recovery plan for the city and Taranto area.
