Confirmed Mattioli president of the Federation of the Sea

Vices president are Anton Francesco Albertoni, Luigi Giannini and Vincenzo Petrone

Mario Mattioli, Shipping president of the Italian Confederation (Confitarma), is confirmed unanimously for a biennial second term which president of the Federation of the Sea, the federation of the Italian marine system constituted in May 1994 that reunites great part of the organizations of the field. The council of the Federation has then named vices president Anton Francesco Albertoni (Nautical Confindustria), Luigi Giannini (Federpesca) and Vincenzo Petrone (Assonave).

Moreover Laurence Martin, head of the service international relations of Confitarma, is named general secretary and happens to Carlo Lombardi, that he has covered the assignment from 2010 after to have beginning from followed the Federation its constitution. Vice-secretary general Francesco Giannotti (Assoporti), Marco Paifelman (Federagenti) and Marina Stella are named (Nautical Confindustria).

The board meeting of the Federation of the Sea has held in television conference and has seen the participation, as well as almost all its members, also of invited Alessandro Ferrari (Assiterminal) and Giuseppe Mele (Confindustria).

"I thank the council of the Federation of the Sea - Mattioli has declared - that has to me intentional to confirm president of the organization of the Italian marine cluster. It is for me a great honor, as it is for the shipowners that I preside, and I reaffirm the engagement to beat me for a more and more effective representation of all the marine economy it is near the legislator, the government, the administrations, is near the public opinion and the other associative truths, in Italy and abroad. I restate that my idea is that of a Federation opened to all the marine organizations that still do not take part any or of they have exited, firstly those of the logistics".

"The marine cluster - it has added Mattioli - is facing a difficult challenge as a result of the sanitary and economic crisis, but is ready to pick the opportunities that will be introduced with the resumption. Al moment, we are able to not to estimate the gravity of the impact of the pandemic from Covid-19, that it has seriously hit the entire economy of the world, included obviously the marine activities, generally strongly integrated in international trade, of which represent the main carrier. It is obvious that the repercussions will depend on the evolution of the pandemic and from the ability to restart the economic activity. The borders have been closed, the world-wide question are diminished, the production is reduced or quite stopped. Not to mention the impossibility to carry out the changes of crew, that it is creating a very difficult situation for all the marine ones of the units is cargo vessels who give peach. Today - the president of the Federation of the Sea has remembered - the Day of the Marine one is celebrated all over the world and picks the occasion in order to return the homage of the Federation of the Sea to all our marine ones, to which our thanks for the role goes that they carry out on the naval units in favor of the well-being of all, guaranteeing also to cost of serious sacrifices the marine commerce and the essential supplies for our daily life".

"These times - it has continued Mattioli - demand collaboration, solidarity and an optimistic vision of the future. In this optical there are two important signs, recorded during the crisis from Covid-19. First it is that the fundamental role of the marine-harbour field in Italy is recognized: recently the ministra of Infrastructures and the Transports has asserted that "in Italy the economy of the sea, also being underrated, is the more powerful resource". Other important sign is that the new governance of Confindustria includes a vice president with specific delegation to the Economy of the sea. Italy is in fact a manifacturing power with limited availability of raw materials, whose supplyings reach generally by sea, a earth in great peninsular part, with many islands and coastal towns, whose development not would have been in the past, and not would be today, without the print of the marine activities on their social and economic truth".

"I will not never get tired to repeat - it has concluded Mattioli - than that marine one is a truth that for its relief and its integration would demand a more effective and coherent attention on the political and administrative plan, issue how much never felt by when the marine competences progressively the possibilities of elaboration of national politics of the field and of a its promotion in European within are dispersed between more ministries, compromising".
