US Consul General, careful assessments of investments

Thety should not jeopardise control over fundamental assets

25 July, 12:51
(ANSA) - TRIESTE, JUL 25 - The US Consul General in Milan, Robert Needham, told the local daily Il Piccolo that, when it comes to investments in the Port of Trieste, careful assessments should be made of the economic potential and security risks when these projects involve foreign partners, particularly those who do not share "the same democratic values and attention to human rights as Italy." "We are aware of the importance of ports to the economy and national security," Needham underscored.

"Trieste, like Genoa, is also important with regard to economic relations between Italy and the United States. Any foreign investment in Italian strategic infrastructure is a cause for concern when these investments jeopardize Italy's control over these fundamental assets," he noted. (ANSA).
