ANIS: “What is the industrial policy for the development of companies and to make our system more attractive? The 40-year concession on the expansion of production sites is a clear No to investments “
The need to expand one’s factory, as well as to set up a new one, is part of the normal virtuous entrepreneurial dynamics of a manufacturing company and is a very positive sign, because it means that these companies are doing well and are being rewarded by the market. Yet in a delicate phase for the stability of our economic system, where even the experts of the International Monetary Fund have remarked how the industrial fabric is keeping the country afloat – in terms of income and revenues – the need to expand is decidedly frowned upon and opposed by the government majority, to the point that it is declared beautifully and with satisfaction in the newspapers.
The element of discussion concerns precisely the glories of the producers who, in the event that land owned by the State is involved, be realized with a long and cumbersome bureaucratic and authorization process, so much so that sometimes the time horizon of the investment occurs passed by the procedures themselves. Instead of clarifying and making these dynamics sustainable, even with compensatory operations, the majority has devised a new procedure that we can summarize with a clear No to investments. It has in fact decided to no longer approve the sale of such land, a project presented and the development plan implemented by the company, and in its place to grant only a concession – however onerous – with a time constraint of only 40 years at the end of the which land and all that was built on it will become the property of the state. For businesses, this is an absolutely incomprehensible and unacceptable position, as well as serious and harmful.
It is easy to understand that with this premise an entrepreneur will therefore have an interest in investing in San Marino, neither those already present nor potential ones.
And in this sense our further concern is clear: in a particular European and context and Italian way in which new industrial strategies are being formalized, with very important interventions in physical and international infrastructures accompanied by all kinds of facilities and huge resources available to companies. , this is the message that San Marino launches to the market.
The case in question is perhaps more illustrative than others that we have already highlighted and criticized, but the question remains the same: is this vision of economic development for this country?
A question that we have asked several times to the government in office, but also to the RETE Movement itself in a recent meeting. Unfortunately, despite the data and numbers supporting the demands of the industrial sector, the attitude towards a leading sector as we represent has not changed and this decision, communicated only through the newspapers, confirms it.
We first hope for a primacy on industrial policy that the clarification intends to obtain today and in the future through a frank and open approach that leads to encouraging investments in the territory and to driving them away. Because, if someone still wasn’t clear enough, San Marino desperately needs it! “
