"The 55 objectives set by the National Recovery and Resilience Plan ('NRRP') for the second half of 2022 have been met. This is the result of significant teamwork, also based on constructive political dialogue with the European Commission which, among other things, has allowed a number of critical issues to be overcome regarding the achievement of some objectives. Restoring the central role of the Steering Committee, which provides impetus and coordination, was crucial to achieve this result; this was something that President of the Council of Ministers Giorgia Meloni wanted, and I wish to thank her. My thanks also go to all Ministers, Regions and local authorities for their cooperation and I hope the same synergy will support fulfilment of the next objectives. In this regard, we will be sending the six-monthly NRRP progress report to Parliament in January, as required by regulations", stated the Minister for European Affairs, Southern Italy, Cohesion Policy and the NRRP, Raffaele Fitto, in relation to the NRRP objectives for 31 December being met.
