“In the coming months, the unknown factor linked to expensive energy makes the forecasting activity more complex. It is urgent to intervene on expensive energy through the sterilization of the increases in gas and electricity and the reduction of contributions to contain the cost of labor, avoiding recourse to layoffs “. Thus the president of Confindustria Alberghi Maria Carmela Colaiacovo asked by Adnkronos on the prospects of tourism in Italy for the autumn and winter season after a summer in sharp recovery. “Energy costs have reached unsustainable levels and companies risk being crushed by the expensive bills that alone account for 15% of turnover, since this is destined to worsen”, underlines Colaiacovo who sees “the survival of hotels at risk. small and medium-sized in the absence of volumes in the low season “. Basically” the exponential increase in energy has caused costs for hotel companies to rise to an unsustainable extent. Hotels by definition – he adds – do not fall into the category of companies energy consuming but in practice they see the cost of bills among the most relevant items of the budget. The measures introduced starting from Ukraine 1 to finish the Aid bis are inadequate with respect to the real needs of businesses “, urges the president of Confindustria Alberghi.
