Presenting this report in Rome, Angel Gurría said that Italy has made significant progress in cutting regulatory costs, liberalising product markets and modernising its public administrations in recent years. He added that Italy must continue along the path of regulatory reform to make its economy more competitive and speed up its recovery from the economic crisis.
Italy should enforce tougher restrictions on building in areas that risk earthquakes or forest fires and impose tougher sanctions on violations in the face of a growing threat of natural disasters due to climate change, according to the OECD Secretary-General presenting a new OECD report in Rome.
This review presents a general picture of the overall regulatory reform frameworks in Italy, examining quality regulation, competition policy and professional services.
