Comment Neelie
[...] The EU is putting the tools at your disposal. Over the last seven years, Italy has already programmed €1.6 billion to ICT projects from the EU's Structural Funds. But, as it stands, there isn't enough capacity to plan and implement ICT and broadband projects. That is a major obstacle for Italy to address. Resolve those issues, strengthen that planning, and you can take full advantage of new EU structural and investment funds, for which ICT is a priority area. And you will be removing a major barrier to innovation, productivity and growth. That's an opportunity you can't miss.
