Confitarma, to allow with the Italian ships of the International Registry to carry out cruises between national ports temporary

Mattioli: disappointed from the fact that, in the several adopted provisions, the government has completely forgotten to us

In occasion of the today's audition near the Eighth Commission of the Senate the Italian Confederation Shipping (Confitarma) has confirmed own support to the advanced proposal in recent days by Costa Crociere so that, in order to tackle to the impact negative of the effects of the pandemic, to the ships as those of the crocieristica company which joined the Italian International Registry are allowed temporary to carry out cruises on routes skipper between the national ports.

"We strongly wish - president of Confitarma, Mario Mattioli has explained, in its participation - that they can be approved of two amendments that we consider fundamental for the resumption of the field: first it is what it regards the possibility for the ships of Italian flag enrolled in the International Registry to carry out the cruises between national ports temporary; the second previews a contributive relief in 2020 for the companies with ships enrolled in the ordinary Registry".

The president of Confitarma has remembered the importance for the Country of the marine economy that annually produces goods and services for a value of 34 billion euros (2% of the GDP) supplying occupation to 530 thousand people. "Particularly important - he has specified Mattioli - it is the contribution of the marine transports to the value of the production of the cluster (12,3 billion euros) and to the occupation (about 80.000 between direct and indirect attache's)". Without to count - he has added - that "that Italian is the fifth fleet of flag between the greater economies reunited in the G20, the first in the world of ships ro-ro, generally employees in the marine cabotage and on the "freeways of the sea", fifth of producing special tankers for oil and that in twenty years, the Italian and communitarian marine occupation on the international traffics and foreign coasting trade is increased of 140%. Draft - it has emphasized - of about 38.000 marine communitarian Italians and on board of our ships. Sicché, our marine flag is today to the first place in Europe for communitarian employees, for the majority Italian respect to other communitarian flags that also boasting fleets very larger of ours, occupy a number of marine communitarian clearly inferior".

With respect to the impact of the epidemic from coronavirus on the field, Mattioli has evidenced the important contribution had from the administration in order to resolve the first problems that plagued the operativity of the ships, above all for how much concerns the extension of the validity of the marine certificates of the indispensable ones in order to guarantee navigation. "Unfortunately - but it has specified - in spite of the express acknowledgment of the fundamental role of the marine transport in order to guarantee the essential supplies to the Country, we have been a lot disappointed by the fact that the government has completely forgotten to us, in the several adopted provisions, while the way has been found to refinance Tirrenia and to correspond a meaningful one to pile to the ormeggiatori. Moreover, up to the present we attend a concrete action of the government in order to abroad resolve the serious problem of the marine Italians whom blocked from months on ships because of the restrictions taxes from the pandemic".
