Several trade associations have written to the new minister, Adolfo Urso, to ask for urgent interventions on the subject of expensive energy and more.


There is also UCIMA (Union of Italian Manufacturers of Automatic Packing and Packaging Machines) among the associations that have written to the new Minister of Enterprise and Made in Italy, Adolfo Urso, to ask for urgent measures in order to support the supply chain.

The associations ask for rapid and substantial interventions to counter the cost of energy and the shortage of raw materials, but also not to interrupt the digital transformation process that Italian manufacturing companies have begun.

Among others things, they ask to:

  • extend the delivery of capital goods purchased in 2021 until 2023;
  • make transition incentives 4.0 definitive;
  • define and activate aids to lead small-medium end users towards digitalisation;
  • adjust the legislation on the depreciation of capital goods;
  • support the energy transition in order to make the sector more sustainable;
  • review the patent box and give the green light to the research tax credit;
  • invest in schools, with funds and laboratories;
  • accelerate internationalization and promotion abroad;
  • expand measures to support high energy prices;
  • support the packaging supply chain for the development of increasingly green, sustainable and recyclable packaging.
