Piedmont governor rallies to defence of Fiat chief's comment


(see related stories)
Turin, July 31 - The governor of the region where
the automaker Fiat is based on Wednesday rallied to the defence
of Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, who on Tuesday blasted
business conditions in Italy in a conference call with analysts
and media.
Marchionne said that the ''conditions in industrial Italy
remain impossible'' and has threatened to move production of new
models of Alfa Romeo vehicles outside of Italy.
The governor of Piedmont, where Fiat was founded and
remains based, responded by demanding clearer industrial policy
from State government.
''Where is the government's industrial policy? How long do
we have to wait to see something done? There is no more time,''
said Roberto Cota.
''Fiat no doubt owes acknowledgment to the territory,''
said the governor.
''For this reason it must continue to manufacture in the
Mirafiori plant (in Turin), and even more so given positive
results thanks to Marchionne's actions and investments abroad,''
Cota continued.
''The truth is, though, that every day hundreds of
businesses close down and go away, because they can't make it,
because doing business here isn't competitive and often
impossible. These businesses are not talked about because they
aren't famous and aren't part of the media spectacle,'' Cota
