“Yesterday, after a very strenuous work, the EU Commission approved the amendments to the PNRR presented by the government: it is a task that I am very proud of, a very complex task in which all institutions and categories were involved.” Meloni claimed it was a “much more complex task than one can imagine. It wasn’t obvious to implement, but we did it.”

“Today we can present a new plan that overcomes the critical problems that existed in the implementation of some previously planned measures.”

“In the first 4 months of 2023 we recorded 43% more tourists than in 2022, with the number of employees increasing by about 130,000 employees,” Meloni said. “The strategic plan – he added – is very intelligent, it has planned the objectives and outlined the ways to achieve them.” The plan “improves the competencies of the regions, knowing better the specificities of the territories,” points out the Ministry of Tourism However, a stronger coordination and leadership role is needed to make the use of resources more efficient and rational.”
