Rome, 27 April 2022 - Only one company in three is ready to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the new resources expressly dedicated to the production system by the PNRR, such as Transition 4.0 and the circular economy. 16% of companies are ready to seize the opportunities offered by the new resources. In fact, 16% have already taken steps to join the projects of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, while another 13% are planning to do so. But more than 70% are standing still, without, at the moment, taking an interest in the many development opportunities that are opening up. This is what a survey released by Unioncamere shows. The data, processed by the Guglielmo Tagliacarne Study Centre, was the focus of the Assembly of the Chambers of Commerce.

The data confirms the need to work to disseminate and make known to companies, especially smaller ones, the measures implemented by the Government in the green and digital field - stressed the President of Unioncamere, Andrea Prete. 80% of smaller companies are not even planning to use these resources, compared to 50% of medium-large companies.  The Chambers of Commerce are well aware of how they can play an active role in the development of the country and contribute to the change triggered by the PNRR: we can be a valuable tool for making businesses aware of the enormous opportunities linked to the new resources and for putting on the ground many of the key measures envisaged in the Plan.

In addition - recalled Prete - a survey by the Tagliacarne Research Centre reveals that a reduction of one third of the time dedicated by internal human resources to bureaucratic tasks, reused in production activities, would lead to an increase in company productivity of between +0.5% and +1.1%. For this reason - he concluded - we are actively working to define concrete proposals that can quickly contribute to the simplification process that we really need.

On the other hand, the climate of uncertainty linked to the shock of the war in Ukraine certainly has an impact on the current situation. For almost 9 out of 10 companies, the impact of the ongoing conflict will be high, mainly due to the increase in the prices of energy and raw and semi-finished materials. Almost one in 2 companies has problems with the supply of raw materials and one in 5 with the supply of energy.

The increase in uncertainty affects the birth rate of businesses: the latest information on registrations in the Chamber of Commerce Register shows that when the climate of confidence falls by one point, the birth rate of businesses falls by half a point. 

In the last two years (2020-2021), 81 thousand fewer businesses have been created compared to the pre-pandemic level of 2019, of which 26 thousand fewer young people and 32 thousand fewer women.
