But there is everything in the report. Colao ‘s recipe for relaunching an Italy that has stood still for years is quickly said: it would behave, according to the Corriere della Sera, of 120 cards divided by topics. There is the section companies and I work. The one that concerns the infrastructure and the environment. Then there is tourism (which has been much talked about in recent times), art and culture. The foundations are laid for a more agile and streamlined public administration. Education, research. A plan for the family. The work of the task force would represent the summary that the Prime Minister is studying in these hours in view of the general states of the economy. An appointment that has divided the government in recent days with the dem not too happy with Conte’s choice. He wants to accelerate, partly out of pride and partly out of survival instinct. And these should be the cornerstones for the restart.
The report has as its heart digitization. This is a project for the renewal of the public administration. The return of capital from abroad, the emergence of private savings in safety deposit boxes, the provision of simpler schemes closer to European legislation for the implementation of procurement and public investment. Just on the front of the emergence of private savings, we must remember the words of Colao of a few weeks ago on the use of cash: “I am not for a violent approach. But when is the last time we have had the need to have a 200 or 500 euro banknote, which shouldn’t exist at all? I could live without ever withdrawing the cash machine. There is no need for cash, nor any pos. Every smartphone can do this. It is clear that incentives must be created for those who do and for those who receive electronic payments. A little black would bring it out “. Clear words that suggest that the crusade against cash (with the lowering of the ceiling to 2000 euros from 1 July) is only at the beginning.
As for infrastructure, we start fromhigh speed until you get to bridge over the Strait. The report of the task force led by Colao identifies in the infrastructures of national interest an essential element for the relaunch. The report then points to companies, with an enhancement of the green economy and a series of actions to entice Italian companies that have relocated abroad to return. Then the reforms: from the abuse of office to the increase to 30% of the advance granted to the contractor of public works, up to the streamlining for authorizations for private construction and for environmental impact assessment procedures.
The “Colao plan” should be made known in days, perhaps coinciding precisely with the opening of the General States. But the stomach pains of the opposition of center are obvious. “The Prime Minister should make the full text of the Colao plan known immediately, allowing all Italians direct and complete access to the proposals of the team of experts set up to draw the indispensable reforms to Italy”he asks loudly Mara Carfagna, vice president of the Chamber and deputy of Come on Italy. “Even the opposition has the right to know its content without further waiting: if you really aim to involve all the country’s forces in the reconstruction and change phase, the work of the Colao group cannot be used as government property or be sipped through journalistic indiscretions “.
In short, Carfagna asks for transparency and courage. He wishes to open a great public debate aimed at shared decisions. “Otherwise, we risk that what produced by the task force of experts will make the end of the old spending review projects: beautiful, very interesting, finished in oblivion in a few days”.
He also spoke on this issue Matteo Salvini: “Since the task forces are paid by the Italians, there must be no secrets about the country’s revitalization plans: take out the documents! League has already proposed some priorities: the Genoa model for infrastructures, a flat tax to help millions of families, not to Mes to not sell the future of our children and closed ports “.
