As a manager of the state property predisposed, in the 2014, the tender procedure thus starting a route troubled that today I see finally end». The signature of the concessionary act - added the president of the AdSP, Luciano Warriors - it is the piece that was missing to "leave us definitively behind years of tragedies, legal disputes and operational difficulties. Now we can look to the future with greater serenity. The hope is that the exercise of the concessionary activity guarantees the widest involvement of local businesses. I also expect that the company follows up on the expected growth commitments employment'.
