Rossi (Assoporti): Now is not the time to open a season of conflict in the ports

According to Admiral Pettorino, the Chinese Silk Road integration of the Italian economic system with issues go beyond the national interest

Now is not the time to open a season of conflict ports. The appeal is from the president of the Association of Italian Ports (Assoporti), Daniele Rossi, who today, in his association's general meeting Naples Maritime Station, highlighted the moment of difficulties for the Italian economic system caused by effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the health crisis that the ports helped to address continued to work for move the goods needed to deal with the emergency and to community sustenance. "It is not time to conflict," urged Rossi, addressing all parts of the maritime-port community: shipowners to dockworkers and trade unions. The president of Assoporti called on the parties to show a sense of responsibility on issues that were already "hot" crisis such as those of self-production in ports and renewal of the contract of port workers, but also invited the political party to support port activities allowing, for example, dredging works to be carried out in some ports that -- pointed out Rossi -- are no longer procrastinable, or even simplifying the rules for port infrastructure.

All over the field, Admiral John's greeting speech Pettorino, Commander General of the Port Captains' Corps, identified three of the main challenges facing compare Italian ports: the first is that of the naval gigantism that sees ports like national ones designed for small ships to now have to accommodate container carriers 400 meters long and 60 meters wide. According to Pettorino, the second challenge is the one posed by mergers and acquisitions that are taking place in the shipping industry which -- observed the admiral - are putting the regulatory system in crisis and, for example, - recalled -- they forced a Port Authority to State Advocate's opinion to resolve a decision issue related to a concession. The third challenge - for Pettorino - is the one placed by the Chinese Silk Road, a project that "An integration of our economic system with issues that go beyond the interest national team.'

Among the hot themes that Italian port has faced before the pandemic and which are still in the order of the day there is that of the conflict with the European Union on the taxation of the Port Authority, with the work of the government - mentioned in his greeting by the undersecretary at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, with delegation to the Ports, Roberto Traversi - to convince the EU that Italian port authorities they only work for the public interest.

Another current theme, although not related to the emergency, is that - recalled by the national president of The International Propeller Clubs - the appointment of the new presidents of the Authorities Port System given the next deadline for the current mandates, theme - urged Umberto Masucci - that must be addressed putting the competence of candidates back at the centre of the charge.
