“The growth model we have here in Emilia Romagna is to invest in skills and training”. This was stated by Matteo Lepore Mayor of Bologna speaking at the inauguration of the new Center for Industrial Excellence of Philip Morris International, which was held today in Crespellano (Bologna). “Speaking with many entrepreneurs – he added – you can feel this sense handed down from generation to generation. Bologna is facing a crossroads. Thanks to the infrastructures, at high speed, ours has become a very attractive territory. The task of politics is that. to implement the task assigned to us by Europe. The competitiveness of the area will be partly due to how we will spend the 8 billion euros that will arrive in the metropolitan area of Bologna in 5 years. As a metropolitan mayor I dream of being able to say about Bologna that, in 10 years, it will be the place where there is the greatest computing capacity, where there are the best skills and where there are the factories of the future ”, he concluded.
