It is now necessary to better structure the Italian environmental system to make it more coordinated and effective when is exported abroad. We will start with in reorganizing in the international groups in which we participate and establish contacts and permanent exchanges with Italian networks in force at the European institutions dealing with environmental issues, starting with the EEA. My intention is, above all, to commit myself to better support the EEA in its task, but also to demonstrate that the national competencies can be very useful in Europe and worthy of being valued".
