On the Whirlpool case, the Mise is evaluating the possibility of entering the safeguard fund into the reindustrialization plan, that fund created during the Conte 2 government and already used to solve other crises. This is what the Deputy Minister for Economic Development Alessandra Todde would have said. “Let’s see – Todde would have said – if there will be the right conditions for this”. From what is learned, Todde explained that before naming the companies interested in the new plan for the Neapolitan site, a structured perimeter with Whirlpool must be defined so as not to create problems for listed companies that have shown real interest. The Consortium will negotiate with Whirlpool, but – Todde would have emphasized – there must be agreements in a clear time frame. The Mise will monitor and evaluate the role of Invitalia.
Towards a turning point
And at the same time from Naples, during an initiative promoted by Coldiretti, the Minister of Agricultural Policies Stefano Patuanelli intervened, commenting on the suspension of the dismissal procedure for the workers of the Whirlpool plant in Naples: “I think yesterday’s could be a turning point” . Patuanelli recalls that, as Minister for Economic Development of the Conte bis, “we had carefully followed the dispute with Undersecretary Todde. Alessandra has worked very well and there is an interesting solution that lies ahead for the future of this plant and these workers. I think it is the right way ».
