The comment inforMARE

“The impossible” carried out one that yesterday we asked the governors of the Italian portualità today appears possible. To print the sudden turn they could not that to be two shining exponents of the harbour institutions.

We asked a responsible and shared choice, and this seems to be the objective of the initiative of Merlon and Mounts turn to hold together the national portualità and to guide it in a moment of serious crisis of the European and Italian economy.

“In front of we - they have confirmed Merlon and Mounts - there are too many and too much serious expirations in order to lose other time, in order to waste other energies”. Nobody, in fact, would pardon to Assoporti and the Harbour Authorities a been extended and sour crash for the guide of the association.

It is not time neither of bizantinismi neither, least of all, of partitions of seats when it is the pavement that risks to sink.
Luigi Merlo and Pasqualino Monti, the two main candidates to the presidency of the Association of the Italian Ports (Assoporti), have introduced a proposal common with the objective to place to the center a real strategy of throw again of the association of the ports. The day before yesterday directive of Assoporti, taking note that “equivalents for two candidates to the presidency were expressed indications substantially” - that is for Merlon, that he is president of the Harbour Authority of Genoa, and for Mounts, that it presides the Harbour Authority of Civitavecchia Fiumicino Gaeta - had decided to continue the job of the designation committee and he had established to send back the shareholders' meeting of the association to the next July ( of the 12 june 2012).

Today Merlon and Mounts, in an open letter that we publish below, have launch a combined proposal for a unitary management of a “Assoporti new”. The two candidates have declared the intention “to make every means step behind” and on hand setting “both of the portualità with the engagement (both without emolumento, both equally responsible), putting to common factor professionality, acquaintance, contacts, report”. “We propose ourselves - they have specified - to work with to a unitary programmatica proposal subjecting to the directive one, a programmatica proposal that will be characterized also by the objective to try to elaborate proposed of “autoriforma” of the Italian harbour system”.




This that is happening in these hours in Assoporti worries us, not for personal ambitions. It worries to us and a lot, because the Italian ports never as today they have need of a solid guide, through a generous contribution and an unit of attempts on the increase and the development, that it pursues precise strategies of I throw again and strengthening of a field that records the minimal point of attention on a national level. Convinced that serious politics of development of the Country cannot also prescind from a strengthening of the ports and a rationalization of that logistic cycle that has own in the marine ports of call its determining element, convinced that without measures series in this field the recovery of competitiveness of the System Country would be alone an utopy.

The argument that has been opened on the future of Assoporti and on the role that this association could and have in the cabin of direction of the Italian logistics is emblematic of the diffuse malaise that grips the entire Country, divided from anachronistic political contrasts that continue to being fed out of due time maximum.

Assoporti has risked and risks to crack itself on a contrast that would become incurable, losing credibility and autocondannando the ports to a marginalization of which it would make the expenses the entire collectivity, that collectivity that is today unaware of their strategic importance.

The argument that has been developed in Assoporti, if it continued in the way in which it has been characterized, leading in an impasse or a fracture, would not be only unproductive; it would be a true disaster for the Country.

We are the two candidates to the Presidency who in the done so as ones are divided, almost to 50%, the consents of the presidents of the Italian ports, for the nomination to the guide of the Association.

But we are convinced that it is necessary today a new Assoporti, a Assoporti new that make of the strategies and the force of collision with which he will be able to impose them, its reason of being.

It is for that we have decided to make every means step behind and to propose to the Directive one of the Italian ports, through this opened letter, an innovative choice: not two witness for a seat, but two will for a common strategy.

Yes. With the force of the consent that many colleagues have come to an agreement to us, we have chosen to introduce to Directive summoned before the assembly an only cabin of combined direction in which the confidence of the majority of the ports in both is translate effectively in operativity in favor of the field.
In other words we on hand set both of the portualità with the engagement (both without emolumento, both equally responsible), to put to common factor professionality, acquaintance, contacts, report. In short a team coesa and hard.

We believe that the national emergency of the ports, placed inside that more extended of the Country, demands a effort coeso. Entirety we will be able to put into effect it. We propose ourselves to work with to a unitary programmatica proposal subjecting to the directive one, a programmatica proposal that will be characterized also by the objective to try to elaborate proposed of “autoriforma” of the Italian harbour system.
We consider that to join instead on the strategy that to divide on alignments or names it is already a small revolution, and we hope of being able to be in our little one from example for this Country. For the good of the Italian portualità, in this moment they do not have to be to us territorial divisions, of political or identitaria belongings.

In front of we there are too many and too much serious expirations in order to lose other time, in order to waste other energies. There is the expiration of the collective contract of field, than united to the economic crisis and of within there is a need for actions and examples founded on the responsibility and the engagement. There is spending review potentially shattering own for a portualità not even taken in consideration in its value of strategic asset. There are ports that have need of answers now, not between months, or years, to their problems. They are chosen to complete, enclosed that autonomy financial institution that represents one of large the incomplete ones. For these reasons we have picked the invitation that has come from the three tests to a dialogue between the two candidates who have had more indications so that they worked together.

Luigi Merlo,
President A.P. Genova

Pasqualino Monti,
President A.P. Civitavecchia Fiumicino Gaeta
