Assiterminal, the sentence of the Cassation on the Local Property Tax demanded to the terminals operator proves the absence of politics for the portualità

The reform of the governance of the launched portualità two years ago - denunciation the association - is inattuata in its objectives and instruments

The Court of Cassation has established that the communal tax on the pieces of real estate must be applied to the areas discovered in concession to the PSA Voltri-Prà, the society that manages the container terminal in the end West of the port of Genoa and Harbour the Italian Association Terminalisti (Assiterminal) considers that this sentence inflicts a hard blow to the competitiveness of the terminals operator of some ports and represents the failure of the policies for the ports.

According to the association, in fact, the sentence of the Cassation "has a value and a gravity that goes very beyond the specific case, also important for its economic consistency. In that sentence - Assiterminal explains - it comes plastic represented the absence of politics for the portualità in a position to giving sure rules, homogenous on all the national territory, to who it decides to invest in that field, the harbour terminalisti firstly".

"It is a fundamental rule of the economy all over the world - the association of the Italian terminalisti observes - that which wants that the economic competition, the competition between enterprises, is played with parity of conditions between the competitors. But it is a rule that is not worth for the ports of this Country, because many last governments and you anticipate have not known, that before still intentional, to defeat localisms that have done so as that every port made republic if, applying the same norms interpreting them until making them to completely become various, quite contrasting, from truth to truth. And we are not to speak about secondary dispositions, but, in order to only cite two cases, of norms that regulate the concessori regimes and the criteria for the definition of the canons, or that they influence the organization of the job; in short fundamental rules for disciplining the correct competition".

"A large one is made to speak - Assiterminal emphasizes - about legislative simplification and of certainty of the norms and it is not succeeded to operate in order to define a sure perimeter to the initiative of the Authority of Regulation of the Transports, risking to generate an ulterior factor of competence and complication on the responsibilities of the institutions which the title is premail on it I use of the Federal property and on the concessions".

"Two years ago - the association finds moreover - a reform of the governance of the portualità is launched that would have had to give a homogenous approach to the policies for the infrastructural and harbour development. That reform is inattuata in its objectives and instruments. The reduction of the Harbour Authorities with the creation of the Authorities of Harbour System has not had some effect on the harmonization of the norms as above. Indeed, we are to the paradox that in many cases in the same AdSP conflicting rules in the two harbour withins cohabit aggregates. The national table of coordination of the presidents of AdSP, that it must have had a fundamental function in the address of the infrastructural investments, does not turn out is operating. What not never we are made to lack are conventions, announcements, propagandizes, theoretical arguments and legal practices".

"With this patrimony and paraphernalia - Assiterminal concludes - it is thought that the Italian portualità is able to face the future"
