Dear petrol, Urso announces a “measure” to control prices
While the gas goes beyond i 2 euros per litre with the diesel which is close to 1.99 euros, the Meloni government takes action and announces a “provision” to calm the prices at the pump. A sigh of relief for Italian families, already in difficulty due to thegalloping inflation. The Minister of Made in Italy Adolfo Urso on the sidelines of the Cna event in Rome he declared that “the provisions relating to expensive petrol we think we can configure them already in next Council of Ministers. But we will certainly do so after the discussion we will have on Friday with the trade union forces who asked us to do so on how to combat the inflation phenomenon and guarantee an incomes policy”. And he then recalled that “from October 1st the Anti-inflation pact which all the players in the production chain joined”, a sort of anti-inflation quarter on the shopping cart.
But not only inflation. In illustrating some of the main measures implemented by Mimit and the government to support businesses, and in particular craftsmanship, Urso recalled that in the next maneuver the government “will supply the Guarantee fund to make it structural, ordinary by increasing resources for the smaller companies that need them most”. Furthermore, the minister added, “what happened with the foodstuffs it will happen with i artisanal products which can be recognized in the certification system. In short, just as we have had the recognition of San Daniele ham, so we will have Murano glass. We have allocated resources for a mapping of Italian realities and to assist local businesses in starting a path of recognition of the geographical indication”. Furthermore, Urso recalled “the Bill on Made in Italy, with a strategic sovereign fund” active “right from the procurement of raw materials, and procedures to combat counterfeiting”.
Returning to work and support for businesses, Urso declared that in the next budget law the executive’s intention is to insert – in a structural way – a rule which concerns “the generational transfer of skills for businesses with fewer than 15 employeescalling retirees or pensioners back to work for two years to be able to train those who have taken their place, young people with permanent contracts”.

In addition, “in addition to the resources of Pnrr already in place to support businesses”, the executive is negotiating to this end, as part of the RePower EU package, almost 8 billion euros, of which 4 billion destined for the new Transition 5.0 plan, 1.5 billion for investments in the production of energy from renewable sources for self-consumption, 2 billion to the green technology production chain, 320 million for the new Sabatini green”. The latter “will be added to the traditional Sabatini which we will refinance adequately in the economic maneuver”. “We are aware that the European Central Bank’s maneuver has created further ballast on businesses”, explained the minister. This is why Sabatini is necessary, “which reduces the cost of interest”.
