The three days of Giancarlo Giorgetti , Minister of Economic Development and Federal Deputy Secretary of the Lega, in the United States, opens in the American morning (Italian afternoon) with a visit to the Moderna plants . The trip is designed to confirm the turning point undertaken by Italy after the two Conte governments. As the American magazine Foreign Affairs wrote, “by aligning its policies with US and European priorities, Italy has made clear its position in the emerging technological competition between China and the West”. THE LINK WITH THE USA
As we pointed out on in recent days (first here, after here), Giorgetti has always maintained a direct relationship with the United States: first as undersecretary at Palazzo Chigi during the Conte I government when, and at the White House there was Donald Trump , was dealing with hot dossiers such as 5G and Golden power; then as a bridge between Matteo Salvini ‘s League struck by investigations on alleged funds from Russia and the American establishment; finally, as a minister of the government of broad agreements led by Mario Draghi , whose relationship with Joe Biden ‘s administration is known and solid (as well as that between the minister and the prime minister).
