Mirella Cristina (FI), Alberto Gusmeroli (Lega), Enrico Borghi (PD), Luca Zacchero (M5S), Luigi Marattin (Action-Italia Viva) participated in the debate; Moderator of the journalist of La Stampa, Luca Bilardo.

The topics that the candidates addressed were many. The first, more current and felt by the entire economic sector, is the one related to “expensive energy”, about which the associations ask:

Measures to contain billing costs;

Introduction of a gas price cap with the maintenance of the VAT rate at 5%;

Allocation of a national quota of production from renewable sources at managed costs to the manufacturing industry;

stabilize the subsidy mechanisms for energy and renovation of buildings, simplify the rules, improve the credit transfer mechanism, ensure controls

Inclusion of accommodation facilities in the CSEA such as hotels are energy-intensive businesses, and at the same time extend and strengthen and include the tax credits for non-energy-intensive and non-gas-intensive businesses.

On the burning issue of “love energy”, the president of the Unione Industriale VCO, Michele Setaro, sounded an alarm, saying: “The situation has abundantly reached and exceeded the limit of tolerance of the companies that run enormous and destabilizing risks. Until now, companies, even in our territory, have been capable and flexible, so much so that they know how to defend themselves better than others, but now our association, which makes a careful monitoring of the delicate situation, receives reports from companies of cases of tenfold invoices, which require immediate support interventions. It’s too late, the industry can’t wait any longer“.

The president of the Federalberghi VCO, Gianmaria Vincenzi, focused on the issue of renewable sources, drew the audience’s attention to a bureaucratic problem that actually prevents many companies, including hospitality companies, from being able to install photovoltaic systems until now, although the relative applications for have been submitted for some time, the offices of the customs agency have not yet provided the necessary certification.

The alarm cry has also the president of the ANCE VCO, Rino Porini, who in the face of the reckless increases of the last months also says that he is worried about the construction sector: On the one hand, the various bonuses actually helped. to revive the sector, which has been in recession for twelve years, in recent periods there have been dizzying spikes in material costs, such as fearing the closure of many construction sites and jeopardizing the completion of works, including for projects related to the PNRR.

Massimo Sartoretti, President of Confcommercio Alto Piemonte / Ascom VCO, focused attention on the improvement of proximity trade to combat the degradation and isolation of peripheral areas, on the viability of the territory, on the introduction of a Mandatory tip for catering and on demand. To coordinate tourism policy at the national level.

Then the debate continued on the issue of “labour and costs” that companies have to face.

In summary, the associations requested a specific “border” “contribution and tax wedge reduction” for companies that fall within an area of ​​50-60 km from the Swiss border, which have been dealing with the problem of “wage dumping” for years now .”

Another issue that sparked the debate is the one related to “young people and work”. In this regard, it was emphasized:

the difficulty of finding skilled work;

how there is a need for the orientation of young people in technical schools;

as it is necessary to meet the demand and supply of the work that is currently lacking;

as it is necessary to offer at least six months of (paid) internship in the companies, to de facto be referred to as “school education”, as has been happening for some time abroad and in neighboring Switzerland.

Always in connection with the labor issue, the much-discussed “citizenship income” and the problem with Naspi for the tourism and catering sector are addressed, which actually leads to distortions, even in the recruitment of staff.
