Rome, 29 October 2021 – The success of the policies linked to the NRP makes it essential to have a greater connection between the government and the business world, and the Chambers of
Commerce are an essential pivot of this special connection. – This was stressed by the President of Unioncamere, Andrea Prete, during the Assembly of the Presidents of the Chambers of
Commerce, attended by the Minister of Economic Development, Giancarlo Giorgetti.
Simplification, digital transformation and innovation, sustainability, the labour market, entrepreneurship and internationalisation are the five themes on which the Chambers of Commerce can make
a valid contribution to the economic growth of the country, – said the President of Unioncamere, calling for the reform of the Chambers to be completed, – so as to complete the
reorganisation process that has given us back more modern and efficient structures, which can make available the experience gained over the years in bringing the Government’s measures to
For Prete, – the administrative transition is the first leg of the ongoing process of change. – A reduction of even 25% in administrative procedures would lead to an increase in gross
domestic product of 1.8% by 2026.
However, – said the President of Unioncamere, – this transition must take longer, because businesses need to be able to count on a faster and more efficient public machine to compete.
For this reason, Prete announced the constitution, at Unioncamere, of a permanent Commission for simplification, with the participation of the business confederations of the various sectors.
The aim of the Commission is to set up a round table to share concrete proposals for simplifying and reducing the bureaucratic burden on businesses, to be brought to the attention of public
decision-makers. One of these is that the Chamber system should become the single point of access for businesses to the public administration.
The President of Unioncamere also recalled the anomalous situation of the labour market linked to the mismatch between supply and demand.
In 2021 alone, companies will struggle to fill one in three jobs. This mismatch, which has been detected for years through the Excelsior information system of Unioncamere and Anpal, represents a
cost for the country that Censis estimates at over 20 billion euros subtracted from the GDP this year.
