SEZ Abruzzo meeting in Pescara: a special opportunity for the companies

This is what emerged from the round table that was held in the Chamber of Commerce Chieti Pescara, strongly desired by President Strever to clarify the opportunities to be seized and the difficulties (bureaucratic still in place) to be overcome, without losing further time. 

On the table there are, in fact, 63 million euros of the 630 destined for infrastructural investments aimed at ensuring adequate development of the connections of the SEZ with the national transport network, in particular with the Trans European networks (TEN-T). 

Prof. Mauro Miccio, for the first time in the role of Extraordinary Commissioner, which became operational starting from October, was welcomed in the home of companies by entrepreneurs, organizations and institutions, trade associations, trade unions and professionals. 

The SEZ, as recognized in the last G20, could play a fundamental role in the post-pandemic recovery because it could generate economic opportunities, diversification of the productive fabric and simplification of the state machine. 

Among the nodes to be resolved next, the adoption of a single platform by the municipal SUAPs, the interface of the company for the presentation of the investment project, which would allow to link the powers of the Commissioner with the activities planned at the counter. Thanks to the intermediary role of the Chamber of Commerce of Chieti Pescara, in fact, a dialogue was activated with Infocamere for the adoption of a platform used by over 50% of Italian municipalities, the only one able to dialogue with the Business Register of the Italian Chambers of Commerce and automatically feed the electronic business file. 

Finally, the tax credit instrument is still poorly understood, the application of which must be submitted separately to the Revenue Agency, with which a specific agreement was signed, on the occasion of the round table, to promote awareness of the advantages connected to greater use of this tool among businesses. 

The road is long and the time is short, especially if we take into account that, by 31 March 2022, all the works envisaged by the RRP must have a prior authorization from the point of view of environmental assessment, one of the many procedures subject to simplification in the event of full operation of the SEZ.
