Bureaucracy 'worse' than the mafia, Confindustria says
Sicily chapter denounces invisible, multifaceted red tape25 February, 18:37
Red tape is worse than the mafia because it is invisible and has many different facets, said Antonello Montante, leader of the Sicily chapter of Confindustria.
"Entrepreneurs cannot plan for the costs incurred by bureaucracy and the bottlenecks created ad hoc that allow the mafia to worm its way in," said the Confindustria representative for legality. "Paradoxically those who decide to invest in Sicily are more afraid of bureaucracy than of the mafia because the latter can be fought with support from the judiciary, police and associations".
