Minister Giorgetti anticipates a draft multi-year plan in favor of the automotive sector which is discussed in the Council of Ministers on Friday 18
One billion a year for the car divided between incentives and interventions in favor of the supply chain grappling with the technological transition. This could be the extent of the interventions in support of the auto sector which the Council of Ministers will discuss on Friday 18th. This was anticipated by the Minister for Economic Development Giancarlo Giorgetti in an interview published in Sole 24 Ore. This is a hypothesis that has yet to be confirmed, also considering the different points of view within the executive.
incentives also for thermal cars
“The idea is to launch in the Council of Ministers on Friday a single Fund for the automotive sector which will then be declined by the ministries both in terms of incentives and on the other side of the industrial problem we are facing, namely the aid for reconversion. of our production chain “said the minister. On the extent of the aid he adds: “We are discussing on the basis of about 1 billion a year. We think it only makes sense to activate multi-year actions”. Incentives shouldn’t be for just electric models. “Supporting electricity only means doing a favor only to foreign producers” says Giorgetti, explaining that in the majority “we have different sensitivities, I have the sensitivity of those who produce in Italy and not in Asia. I think we shouldn’t stop at electric also for encourage the purchase of cheaper cars in favor of less well-off classes. We must also discuss this with the Ministry of Ecological Transition, but our proposal reaches up to 135 grams of CO2 per km because we have the responsibility to also incentivize a share of national production “.
the gigafactory of termoli
Regarding the Termoli factory to be converted into a production plant for electric cars, “we are convinced that Stellantis and the Gigafactory of Termoli that we will support with 369 million public resources” shows that there are several cards that Italy can play in favor of automotive supply chain. On 1 March Stellantis will present the long-term strategic plan, in which, it is easy to predict, more will be known about the fate of the Molise plant.
