The annual report "Going for growth"ofOECD, the organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, launches a warning to our country: the no digitization leads to slow growth and the latter produces inequality. The institutions should therefore intervene quickly to support a policy that is sustainable and inclusive.
To halt development even in the technological sense of the Peninsula there would be four factors in particular: inefficiencies of a poorly digitized Public Administration, one taxation which does not facilitate the birth and work of innovative companies, a disproportionate number regulatory charges to be observed and a general poor quality of the infrastructure available.
Italy would also suffer from a labor market that is still extremely fragmented and underdeveloped, contributing to a school that would not be able to offer the skills currently required by companies. Finding trained personnel with advanced digital skills would be far more difficult than expected.
Instead, training courses, targeted vocational education, apprenticeship and lifelong learning represent a possible cure for stagnation. These elements could lead to greater opportunities for matching employment demand and supply, create new jobs and spread the skills actually sought by the productive fabric.
Still according to the OECD, the Belpaese would immediately need to higher digital investments to combat tax evasion. In this way we could recover huge resources to invest in education, modernization of the bureaucratic machine and simplification of the relations between users / companies and institutions.
