Special Economic Zones

The Special Economic Zones (SEZs) were established in 2017 with the "Decreto Mezzogiorno" (“Mezzogiorno Decree”) to boost growth in Southern Italy by supporting enterprises through tax credits and incentives.

Institutional Development Contracts

The Institutional Development Contracts (Contratti Istituzionali di Sviluppo – CIS) are agreements between Ministries, Regions and implementing bodies (Italian Railways Network (RFI) and ANAS) aimed at accelerating the construction of major railway and motorway infrastructures deemed as strategic for the Country.

Territorial Public Accounts

The Territorial Public Accounts system (Conti Pubblici Territoriali – CPT) measures and analyses the financial flows of income and expenditure of public administrations and of all entities belonging to the enlarged public sector component (consortia, State-owned enterprises, and foundations).

National strategy for re-use of confiscated assets through Cohesion Policy

"A modern anti-mafia policy must be focused not only on personal repression, but, even before that, on countering mafia’s wealth. Undoubtedly a central role is to be assigned to the system for management and destination of confiscated assets, enhancing its efficiency so as to promote the reaffirmation of legality and consolidate the development of territories scarred by mafia phenomena."

Development Pacts

The Agency is called upon to contribute, in coordination with regional and local authorities, to implementing the Government's investment initiatives. Through the Development Pacts, the Government, the Regions and the Metropolitan Cities commit themselves to specific priority objectives and set deadlines for their implementation.

The 2030 Plan for Southern Italy

It is a multi-year project worth over €123 billion for the relaunch of Southern Italy and the rest of the Country, designed to reduce the gaps at citizen and territorial level across the Country, and restart a stronger and more sustainable development path.
