Country overview

The continued quality of Italy's planning and procurement processes promotes competition among suppliers and, in turn, provides better value for money and outcomes for infrastructure investment. The government is working on new measures to support public investment by simplifying administrative procedures in areas that are crucial to the relaunch of public and private investment, such as procurement and procedures for public works and ultra-broadband.

Governance structure

Italy has a civil law system and four levels of government: national, regional, provincial, and communes. Regional governments hold varying amounts of control and powers.

National Infrastructure Banks

In tandem with the development of forward pipelines, the National Infrastructure Banks and Similar Financing Facilities tool serves as guidance to governments looking to establish or reform National Infrastructure Banks. These institutions can maximise the quantity and quality of infrastructure projects and crowd in private investment, providing value for end users. National Infrastructure Banks provide the financing, expertise, and long-term planning for both public and private stakeholders to develop infrastructure in line with the needs of the community.
