They are also necessary for the EU public investment and the promotion of private investment to foster economic recovery with a particular focus on “the green and digital transition”, stresses Brussels, who calls for “special attention on production and the use of clean energy“And” the strengthening of digital infrastructures“Of the country” to guarantee essential services “. When “the economic conditions allow it”, then, Italy will have to commit itself to “reaching a balanced public budget in the medium term and ensure the debt sustainability“.
The poor efficiency of the judicial system and public administration remains a weak point that our country must face. One of the main recommendations, as always for many years now, is to “improve the efficiency of the judicial system and the effectiveness of the public administration”.

Moreover, the disbursement of “social aid, liquidity measures and advance payments may not be effective if they are hampered by bottlenecks in the public sector”
Finally, Italy must “strengthen the resilience and capacity of the health system” in particular on “health workers, critical medical devices and infrastructure“. Faced with the coronavirus crisis, the country must “take all the necessary measures to effectively deal with the pandemic, support the economy and the consequent recovery”, Brussels writes, underlining the importance of “strengthening coordination between national and regional authorities”.
