“The Draghi government showed us that competence and credibility they are fundamental elements for the economy of a country. In recent months ours GDP it has grown more than the French and German ones and this shows that our productive, industrial and economic fabric is healthy and dynamic and if it is stimulated with the right decisions it is second to none in the world ». A few weeks after the electoral challenge, the president of Confcooperative Romagna Mauro Nerithrough a press release, throws a appeal to the candidates: «Our system has long been organized in a European context and credibility is a fundamental thing. For decades our country had been oppressed by public debt and a blocked GDP and we were wondering if it was the fault of an inefficient economic model suffering from structural problems. Today we know that our model is a winner and parties have a great responsibility“.
The current context of the entrepreneurial system is very complex because it is marked, as everyone knows, by it unsustainable increases in energy and raw material costsas well as a by now endemic labor shortage. Businesses, including cooperatives, are worried about the financial years in progress and are awaiting organic interventions as soon as possible. “The cooperatives are at the limit, but if we manage to overcome this 2022 we expect the situation to improve – comments the president of Confcooperative Romagna -. The energy problem, unlike that of manpower which is much more structural, you can solve it with emergency backups and with interventions on the formation of the price of energy, which must be followed by programs and investments in the medium term. Even if these exorbitant costs of energy and raw materials seem chronic by now, a light can be glimpsed at the end of the tunnel ».
On the labor front, Neri adds: «There is a social change in place. People, especially young people, are no longer attached to the old model of life, they prefer to move, change jobs, choose. Added to this change is the demographic decline that has put the world of work in crisis. Immigration is the only solution, but we need to focus on serious integration projects that make everyone understand that people arriving from other countries are a resource and not a problem ».
A final mention is then dedicated to the members and workers of the cooperatives, today struggling with high inflation. “Cooperation is an enterprise that is based on people and, as such, it has to do everything possible to stay close to its members and workers. Maybe putting something less in reserve. Workers are a resource, they are the heart of a company, without them we would not go anywhere “..
