"MSC Cruises - announced Leonardo Massa managing director of the company's Italy - is ready to start again, we only await the authorization of the government that we hope it will come soon. We have worked a lot in developing a protocol to ensure health cruisers and crews, a protocol already approved by the Scientific Technical Committee, which incorporates the EU Healthy Gateways but that together with our team of international experts we have enriched and enhanced. We are therefore ready to safely depart and arm two ships, a complex operation, which involves attracting thousands of people and, I want to point out, this summer on our ships will work more than 1,000 Italian seafarers.

Massa recalled that "the arrival of ships in ports Italians, and tourists activate an important flywheel for the economy related supply ranging from port work to port work supplies of food and other raw materials from the territory up to to get to all the induced related to tourism. The cruise - pointed out - it's an industry that weighs about 3% of the National GDP, moves a turnover of 45 billion euros and occupies more than 120,000 employees. We are one of the sectors that most contribute to the creation of value and work in Italy. We ready - concluded Massa - to continue to give our contribution in a concrete, safe and sustainable way."
