In the medium and long term, this will affect both Italy and EU economic policy, and will have immediate consequences in terms of competition law. Businesses wishing to safely operate in the public procurement sector will need to implement, now more than ever before, strict antitrust compliance programmes. We are committed to supporting our clients also in relation to these future developments.
