Italian govt set to slash red tape

Rome, June 18 - The Italian government is poised to approve a new bill designed to dramatically streamline public sector operations and reduce red-tape across departments and agencies. The draft of decree, which the cabinet will discuss on Wednesday, aims to simplify regulations and administrative requirements in areas such as cultural heritage, education, research, health, and the environment, sources said. The bill will require a reorganization to simplify procedures be completed with 24 months. The government hope it will help to weed out old, no longer relevant laws, and ''reduce the administrative burden for citizens and businesses'', sources said. Various regulations and requirements will be better coordinated. One key measure involves the unification of public databases, which would dramatically streamline operations across the civil service. As Italy struggles with its longest recession in more than 20 years, business groups have been calling for lower taxes and dramatic reductions in red tape to help them survive. Critics have also said that simplifying government procedures would help boost economic growth and contribute to job creation.
