Ernesto Abbona, President, summarizes the following: a series of structural and specific decisions to plan the field for the next generation.
In addition to the management of emergencies, such as the curfew on the opening hours of wine stores, or the payment of the equivalent of 50 million euros for food and beverage standby from 2020, it is equally urgent to complete the sustainability decree.
