“We grow little because we do not know how to value young people”. The opinion of the Economy Minister Daniele Franco is clear, who today spoke at the inauguration of the new Academy of the Guardia di Finanza in Bergamo and at the ceremony for the inauguration of the academic year. “Italy – he stressed – shows inadequate results for the quantity and quality of education”. “Young people – he added – emigrate because we value them little and do not value their talent, especially in the southern regions. We must change pace through the funds of the NRP, with the doubling of annual investments in the public administration. The primary objective of the government is to remove the obstacles that have held back the productive activity and the development of young people ». «In 2019, almost 70,000 young people under 40 left the country. In less than 10 years, almost half a million boys and girls have left. Returns amounted to just over a quarter. This is a huge loss of human capital as Italy does not attract highly skilled young people to the same extent. Young people immigrate because we grow little and we grow little because we don’t value young people ».
