The Italian maritime-port cluster asks that Mario Draghi stay at Palazzo Chigi

Continuity is needed in the action of government that - explain the representatives of the sector - can not and should not be jeopardized. Even Assoporti worried about political instability

The Italian maritime-port cluster launches an appeal to Mario Dragons so that between now and Wednesday, when he has in plans the submission to Parliament of his resignation which Thursday had been communicated to Sergio Mattarella and not accepted by the Head of State, decide instead to continue the experience of government. In a joint note Conftrasporto, Confetra, Anasped, Angopi, Anna, Assarmatori, Assiterminal, Assocad, Assocostieri, Assoferr, Assologistica, Assotir, Association National Waste Managers Maintenance Purge sewerage and water, CLIA, Fai, Fedepiloti, Federagenti, Federlogistica, Federtraslochi, Fedespedi, Fiap, Fise Uniport and Unitai highlight that "Italy cannot remain without a guide authoritative and safe in a historical moment like the one we are Living. For this - explain the associations - we ask the Prime Minister Mario Draghi to remain in office and an act of responsibility on the part of the political forces present in Parliament to ensure that, without delay and negotiation, they express their views on their trust in the Commission and allow it to continue working on the many open dossiers".

"The geopolitical tensions that show no sign of diminishing, their disruptive consequences on the international economy and the need to proceed quickly in the implementation of the Plan National Recovery and Resilience - continues the note - impose a necessary continuity in government action, which cannot and must not be jeopardised.'

The Association of Italian Ports (Assoporti) also demonstrates concern about political instability and possible effects on the competitiveness of ports: 'the hypothesis of political instability - specifies the president of the association,, Rodolfo Giampieri - worries us because it is at a time of great uncertainty worldwide, and of relaunching the port sector also thanks to the funds to disposal. We have addressed the issue with all the presidents of the Port System Authorities - specifies Giampieri - and we believe that uncertainty could slow down procedures and activities necessary for ports in terms of competitiveness and development, also in view of the next scheduled deadlines for projects included in the PNRR. This slowdown would be a damage to any government in office and for this we hope that this can be averted."
