Economic recovery: Carlo Sangalli speaks
Carlo Sangalli – President of the Chamber of Commerce – he said “The Milanese economy, in 2020, was particularly hit by the Covid crisis, with a loss of added value of over 10%. This year, thanks to the white zone, there is a return to growth, but the path to recover the lost ground is still long. We need to go ahead with the vaccination campaign and relaunch Milan with the resources of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, almost 5 billion, which we hope will be invested primarily in the strengthening of tangible and intangible infrastructures, such as ultra-broadband, in the relaunch of tourism at an international level and in favor of the innovation of the entrepreneurial system “.
