The EU has 10-year digitization targets, "we want to be more ambitious and set 5-year targets: by 2026 we want 70% of the population to use digital identity and be digitally capable, to bring 75% of Italian PAs to use Cloud services, reach at least 80% of public services provided online and 100% households and businesses reached by ultra-broadband ".
"For the first time, Italy would have an advantage," said Minister Vittorio Colao at a hearing in the Chamber.
Change, including the digital one, must be "radical, pervasive and long-term".
The minister emphasizes this.
The digital strategy "must help us seize the opportunities of the current crisis. It has three major unknowns ahead of it. That of delay, that of inclusion and that of skills. We will remedy the first with infrastructural interventions. We will intervene on the second by insisting on digitization. as an enabling condition for citizenship. We will tackle the third unknown by creating and encouraging ideas and knowledge, in the medium term with investments of people and, in the short term, by supporting administrations in migration "concludes his speech Colao.
"Digital technology is our chance to bring our country back among the European leaders. Through the application of the PNRR we have the opportunity to all actively participate in the work of the 5 very important years ahead of us".
The new tenders for the coverage of the gray areas will begin at the end of 2021 and the goal is to arrive "at the beginning of 2022 with the process completed".
The Minister for Innovation Vittorio Colao said this at the hearing.
"Agcom is mapping the coverage in place, Infratel will ask for commitments in 3 years, we will make everything converge in a" single scheme, both for fiber but also for 5G and we are "evaluating how to make these mappings 'very demanding'" or that are not just promises.
"We plan to leave in May, it will last 30-45 days and we will give visibility to what we are doing," he says explaining the timing of the mapping.
