Conte wand banks: “On loans they can and must do more”


ROME – Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte attacks the banks, guilty in his opinion of not being quick enough in facing the practices for granting loans in support of the revitalization of the economy. “The banking system, which is also offering its collaboration, can and must do more,” he said in his statement to the House on Phase 2.


Throttled lives

A passage from his speech that raised more than one protest by the opposition. Which believes that the delays also depend on government delays, due to the measures provided for by the Liquidity decrees. The prime minister doesn’t think the same way, of course. Indeed, in most cases, he says, the responsibility lies with the banking system.

Wear, alarm: + 30% of requests for help between March and April

So, after urging an “acceleration” of the procedures necessary to disburse the loans covered by the public guarantee, recalling the possibility of obtaining guaranteed loans of up to 25 thousand euros within 24 hours, he again pointed the finger at the credit institutions: “In some cases – he said – these deadlines have been respected, but many reports tell us that in most cases this is not happening “.


Wear alarm, doubled cases. “Bosses do business on the crisis”

According to Conte, therefore, “it is essential that banks manage to align themselves with more efficient practices, ensuring guaranteed liquidity in the shortest time”. Because, he pointed out, “we cannot tolerate that companies can feel deprived of the money necessary to guarantee the economic continuity of their activities, it is a concern that I have also shared with the presidents of Confcommercio and Confesercenti”.
