Italian ports appeal against EU state aid judgment

Rome, Italy (PortSEurope) April 2, 2021 – Italian port authorities, co-ordinated by port association Assoporti, have appealed to General Court of the European Union to reverse its decision of December 4, 2020, which called for a change in port financial management, claiming that ports should be paying corporate tax, which currently, they do not. The EU says that this counts as state aid to the
sector. The complaint was brought by lawyers Francesco Munari, Stefano Zunarelli, Gian Michele Roberti and Isabella Perego. During yesterday’s press conference, President of Assoporti, Daniele Rossi, together with President of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Meridionale (AdSP – Southern Adriatic Sea Port Authority), Ugo Patroni Griffi and the President of Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Di Sardegna (AdSP – Sardinian Sea Port Authority), Massimo Deiana, illustrated the reasons and content of the appeal. They said that the appeal was based on the misinterpretation of the nature of the activities of the AdSPs, which collect concession fees on behalf of the State. Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
