«Over the last two decades, the economic system has undergone profound transformations that pose new priorities in the choices of allocation and distribution of resources. The need to pursue economic growth objectives, particularly relevant for a country like Italy that for years has recorded GDP growth rates lower than the European average must be combined with actions that promote the realization of people in economic organizations, taking into account the environmental impact of each production activity and the social implications of the transformations of work induced by technology. The subject of the meeting on September 29 is the analysis of the role that economic, financial and labour policies play in promoting fair and sustainable growth»‒ Professor Occhino said.
