"This morning in Brussels, together with my fellow ministers for European Affairs, we have adopted the Decision which definitively accepts the requests for amendment, made by the Italian Government, of certain objectives related to the fourth request of the NRRP", announced the Minister for European Affairs, the South, the Cohesion Policies and the NRRP, Raffaele Fitto on the sidelines of the General Affairs Council of the EU.

"This is a very important result that rewards the work done in recent months and which we welcome with great satisfaction: the changes concern 10 of the 27 original objectives, to which was added a further milestone related to strengthening the offer of housing for university students".

"The reorganisation of the objectives related to the fourth payment request – continues Minister Fitto – improves the definition of the measures provided for in the Plan, making them more consistent with both the objectives of the NRRP and the changed international context. Investments that have found, thanks to the revision, a more balanced programmatic definition range from culture to policies for aerospace, from kindergartens to ecological transition in the fields of construction, road transport and rail transport, from experiments for hydrogen in railway mobility and in highly polluting sectors to support female enterprises and the fight against educational poverty”.

"This positive result – concludes Minister Fitto – is the result of an intense and fruitful collaboration between the Government and the European Commission and will allow Italy to submit the relative payment request and start the procedure for the disbursement of the EUR 16.5 billion foreseen for the fourth installment of the NRRP. Today’s decision of the Council of the European Union is the best proof that Italy can efficiently manage European resources, to boost the implementation of the Plan and boost growth, productivity and employment in our country".
