Ursula Von Der Leyen and Giorgia Meloni
Meloni meets von der Leyen, face to face unties the knot on the EU stability mechanism
The news of the meeting a Palazzo Chigi between the president of the European Union Ursula von der Leyen and the Italian premier Giorgia Meloni. A diplomatic visit as eagerly awaited as a chat that brought to the axis table Roma-Brussels several themes, including the question migrantsthe grounding of the projects of the Pnrr and the Mes, the European Stability Mechanism aimed at guaranteeing the economic and financial balance in the euro area.
The first front discussed, relating to the migrantsis certainly a “hot” dossier, especially in view of the forthcoming European Council of February 9thwhere migratory flows, the key role of Italy in the Mediterranean basin and cooperation between the 27 will be discussed. But what Meloni wanted to make clear right away was certainly the second front: the Pnrr. Among the priorities of the government’s economic agenda is precisely that of understanding the feasibility of projects, upcoming deadlines and available resources.
According to what Dagospia writes, Meloni would have explained to the EU president that Italy “he won’t be able to ground the various projects in the terms established with Brussels”. Meloni explained, “it is one thing to make plans, it is another to implement them by tackling all the logistical, bureaucratic, planning and procurement difficulties”. Melons e from the Leyen it was therefore an excellent opportunity “to take stock of the actual progress of the works, the development of which will greatly depend on the Ministry of Infrastructure Matteo Salvini”.
But on one point there was a real understanding. And this concerned the Mes, the European stability mechanism which regulates the financial balance of the euro area. According to what Dagospia always writes, the face to face was worth “the ratification of the Treaty on the Save States Fund, also considering the simultaneous presence in Rome, together with Ursula, of the president of the Eurogroup Paschal Donohoewhich saw the Minister of Economy Giorgetti“.
