Assarmatori, well the amendments of the European Parliamentary Commission TRAN to safeguard maritime services for territorial continuity and motorways of the sea
For the Italian association, the inclusion of maritime transport in the ETS should only cover intra-EU travel
May 11, 2022
Assarmatori claimed that from the Parliamentary Commission TRAN has also received further recognition although indirect of the theses supported for some time by the Italian association: "the choices made by Europe on the ETS - he noted Asthma arresters - threaten to move ocean trade to ports outside the European Union such as those of North Africa". According to Assarmatori, "the inclusion of maritime transport in the ETS it should only cover intra-EU travel'. For the association, 'that scope would render credible and feasible initiative, strengthening the role of leadership of the European Union: this within a a global debate that should take place within of the International Maritime Organization, avoiding tensions international trade and preserving at the same time the competitiveness of EU ports'.
"Now - added Messina - we express the hope that the Italian Government and the European Parliament to accede to the requests advanced by the Senate Committee and the Transportation Committee and EU tourism: environmental sustainability must be in fact conjugated with the economic and social one in order to be pursued to the end".'
Assarmatori also focused on the approval of the European Parliament, in the plenary session of 5 May, of a resolution on the impact of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the tourism and transport, a document expressing 'concern' for the impact of international maritime transport, logistics, supply chains and prices of the fuel" and in which it is emphasized that "a combination higher prices for energy and transport it would affect all citizens, in particular families in low income', inviting the Commission 'to carry out an economic and social assessment of the consequences as a matter of urgency the war on all modes of transport in the EU market and offer support quickly." "Again in this case - messina observed - these are issues that Assarmatori has brought to the attention of public opinion for some time. The risk that geopolitical tensions are reflected economically on the consumers, without properly calibrated interventions, is concrete and in some cases already in place. All this puts to jeopardising the recovery from the pandemic, in particular in the sector tourism and more generally passenger services, as well as of goods'.
