Plan to reduce the tax burden
The tax reform will be articulated and far-reaching. Mario Draghi mentioned this during the consultations with the parties. one conceivable further reduction of the tax wedge, in any case in the name of the progressive taxation. If so reduce the tax burden on income below 40-50,000 euros the lower revenue could be offset by new rules against tax evasion or by the shift of the tax burden from income to consumption. The aim is also to rationalize a more favorable tax environment for investments. The political synthesis is complex.
The green economy becomes central
The Energy Transition is one of the cornerstones of the European plan which has awarded us 209 billion euros over the next six years. The head of the government spoke explicitly of a markedly environmentalist government, suggesting that all the executive’s policies will calculate the impact of the measures on the circular economy, emissions reduction, ecological sustainability in the long run. The new minister Roberto Cingolani will have to set the spending of at least 77 billion euros, 37% of the Italian Recovery: his new ministry centered on the competences of the Environment will acquire proxies from the Mise and perhaps also from Transport. And precisely together with the new Minister of Infrastructure Enrico Giovannini and Minister Vittorio Colao, who will have to deal with the digital transition of the country, Cingolani will have to set up a long-term strategy of sustainable growthe. Calculations in hand, under the direction of Draghi, the three ministers will have competence over almost 90% of the funds of the Italian Recovery plan. A maxi project that will be set up in the very short term, in the next four to six weeks, before being sent to the European Commission, together with the governance model and a time schedule.
Innovation and wiring
The digital transition will be another of the pillars of Mario Draghi’s government program and policies. The new minister Vittorio Colao, former CEO of Vodafone and head of the first task force on the Recovery plan that was desired and then almost ignored by Giuseppe Conte, will have a say on 20% of Recovery resources, therefore on at least 40 billion euros. On these resources he will have a decisive power of direction while managing a ministry without a portfolio, but it is possible that a much greater share will be reached, given that digitization and technological innovation will be transversal to the skills of many ministries, from Cultural Heritage to Health. up to Tourism. Central to Colao’s plans is the completion of the broadband network, complementary to the 5G mobile infrastructure: a double track that should also lead to modernize the public administration, another key reform of the Draghi government, leading the requests of the European Commission together with the reform of civil justice. In Colao’s plans, already written in black and white in the work done by the task force he coordinates, there are also the digitization of all schools e the wiring of all areas of the country.
Reforms and merit in education
Education and human capital are one of the cornerstones of the program. In the first days of his tenure the head of the government spoke of a possible increase in the school calendar so as to make up for the gap in lessons lost due to the pandemic. A total rewrite of the part dedicated to education from the Recovery plan is also planned with the introduction of reforms at no cost such as the evaluation of teachers and the introduction of merit and efficiency criteria, in addition to digital training. An intervention on the chairs was also planned, 10,000,000 were vacant at the beginning of the school year
Efficiency in civil cases
Surely that of civil justice, which today constitutes with its inefficiencies one of the causes of scarce foreign investments in our country, will be one of the main reforms to which Marta Cartabia will dedicate herself. Which at the same time will have the task of immediately finding a difficult mediation in terms of prescription. On Wednesday, in fact, two amendments to the Milleproroghe should be voted to repeal the reform of the former minister Alfonso Bonafede who provides for its abolition after the first degree. According to the Cartabia unthinkableand abolish one of the cardinal principles of the criminal triale.
Acceleration on construction sites
Another objective will be that of public works. During the consultations Mario Draghi spoke of Genoa model alluding to the reconstruction of the bridge in two years: in that case the extraordinary commissioner operated by way of derogation from any provision of law other than criminal, respecting only the provisions of the anti-mafia code and technical standards. 59 priority works are awaiting departure according to a list of the MIT. In the sector from 2016 to date there have been 547 changes and 28 new regulatory measures. A comprehensive procurement reform would be ripe.
The strategies for immunity
For the vaccination plan Draghi aims at a single national platform and the involvement of the Civil Protection and has announced that there are good news coming from Brusselss own on the production of vaccines, which in part could also be moved to Italy, if it were decided to purchase licenses. The goal is to reach at least 300,000 vaccines per day, also involving family doctors, 70,000 sanitary ware they could do on their own 400,000 vaccinations per day. All while waiting for the first Italian vaccine from the Reithera company which could arrive in June.
