Confitarma, deep disappointment at the green light amendment to the amendment on self-production in ports

Mattioli: it will make it impossible for owners to carry out self-producing port operations

Confitarma's owners reject the contents of the Amendment to the Revival Decree on Self-Production in ports approved in the Chamber of Deputies ( 6 July 2020), a rule that shipowners denounce "will make shipowners are unable to carry out port operations in self-production.' "From the first formulation Amendment - recalled the President of the Confederation Italian Owners, Mario Mattioli - we have pointed out, in all The venues, which amend Article 16 of Act 84 of 1994 represents a 30-year step backwards for portability Italian language.'

Specifying that the right to self-production of operations port owners have been recognized as more both the National Antitrust and the Court of Justice European Union, (the latter - he recalled - issued a judgment as early as 1991), Mattioli stated that "denying maritime carriers this right is a violation of the principle of free competition. Not only that -- he added -- in spite of the amendment and the proclamation of a national strike maritime-port, we have demonstrated, both to parliamentarians and trade unions, the immediate availability of a discussion on that delicate subject -- that have nothing to do with with the emergency decree for the health emergency that the country is facing -- in order to find shared solutions, without political forcing."

The president of Confitarma has pointed out that there is nothing I also won the contrary opinions of the government, the General Reasonary Ministry of Finance, which, he said, based on the same motivations as Confitarma and in which It also sees the risk of a Community infringement procedure resulting in damage. "Instead," he noted Mattioli -- the determination to approve such a standard controversial and divisive was stronger than any rationality."

"During this health emergency," he continued, "I President of the Confederation -- we would have liked to see the institutions devote themselves with the same intensity and the same involvement on other issues plaguing maritime transport such as the great difficulty in turnover Italian crews around the world, instead of sinking self-production!. I am sorry to have to point out that, in the face of the strong contribution that the maritime sector has made in recent months to the country, not only at the moment we received little, not to say nothing, since none of our requests were still welcomed, but we never imagined that even there a right that had been acquired for years would have been taken away.'

"Now," Mattioli concluded, "our hope is addressed to the senate even though it's hard to think that there are the time to change that provision again Surely, if the change Article 16 of Act 84/1994 will become the norm of the State, Confitarma will continue its battle to prove that you're taking a big dazzle."
