“Continue work on the third installment, I’m optimistic”
For the release of the third installment of the funds of the Pnrr “I am optimistic and positive. The work with the European Commission goes on. The simplification of the political debate on the third installment, as I have already said, in my opinion is of no use. The third installment consists of 55 goals as of December 31st last year and for the first time we have a series of physical goals that need to be verified, not just reforms”, continued Fitto, on the sidelines of the press conference on the Advances of the Svimez 2023 Report. Fitto defines it “a job complex that we are doing well and constructively with the European Commission”.
“Looking at the quality of spending”
“The 220 billion of the Pnrr and the 80 of the cohesion policy are many resources but there is not only a race against time to spend them, it would be wrong, reductive and limiting. But there is a theme connected to the quality of the expenditure”, said Fitto at the Coldiretti meeting. Fitto underlined the importance of looking “not only at the times but also at how these resources are spent. And this is the work we must do together because unfortunately we have seen many times in the past many European resources were spent without having produced a structural local growth”. According to the minister “this is the fundamental work that we must do in these hours, in the coming days and in the coming months and I am sure that by doing it together we will do a good job”.
