Today at Montecitorio it take place the italian phase of Internet Governance Forum Italia 2015. Among the speakers even Gianni Potti, intervened in the session dedicated to “digital revenge” moderated by Riccardo Luna.
The data emerged in these days demonstrate clearly that the digital delay in our country is huge: only 53% of Italian firms is present on the internet and even only 17% of our companies is present on social networks. But the country has begun a digital comeback the work, not always coordinated by Government, business and civil society.
Here are the reasons to hope that soon we will not be the latest in Europe.
In his speech Potti among other things said: “as a country we focus much on digital manufacturing for growth.
Only one significant revamping of the Italian production system, thanks to digital technology, can enable us to accelerate growth. And here is a new awareness and culture of us entrepreneurs!
Say to the Government that the certain incentives need, but first of all we think that the Government should interpret a new industrial policy, considering the digital not only as a startup and app generator, but as a driver of economic development industry. Us businesses need the Government, operators, give us to be competitive ultra-wideband. Under these conditions, the digital recovery is more than possible! ”
