Monti sees positive outcome for ILVA steelworks


(ANSA) - Bari, September 7 - The ILVA steelworks in the
southern port city of Taranto is "a major factory that cannot
close", Italian Premier Mario Monti said at the opening of the
Fiera del Levante international trade fair in Bari on Friday.
"I believe that sense of responsibility and effective
cooperation between institutions can lead to a positive outcome
to the problems facing a major factory that cannot close," said
the prime minister in relation to the recent temporary shutdown
of parts of the plant over long-running health and environmental
concerns, but which ILVA representatives say will lead to a halt
in production at the site and at other ILVA facilities as well.
The company is now working with the judicial authorities and
environment ministry experts to identify the measures needed to
bring the steelworks in line with European and local
environmental norms.
Monti said the government had made four billion euros
available for "environmental emergencies, instability and
cleaning-up of industrial sites" of which 366 million euro are
destined for the clean-up at the ILVA site.
'That the company should have immediately made its own
commitment by allocating its own resources is a positive thing,"
he added.
In an interview with La Gazzetta del Mezziogiorno published
earlier in the day Monti said "This great southern Italian
factory must continue production and it must do it in a way that
is increasingly sustainable, technologically advanced and
mindful of the environment".
