According to www.informazionimarittime.it, Mr Emanuele Grimaldi said that subsidies and incentives should not be given to companies operating ferries of 40, 50 years old. He said that at a Short Sea Shipping convention in Civitavecchia. The Italian Government has a plan named “Connect Italy”, where the aim is to invest up to €123 billion in more than 100 projects.
Mr Grimaldi said it was important and fair to look at ferry companies, which did invest a lot in environmental-friendly ships.
