Serbia-Italia: apertura a Belgrado master in Appalti pubblici in collaborazione con Università Tor Vergata

Belgrado, 26 ott 14:31 – (Agenzia Nova) – Si è svolta oggi presso la facoltà di Legge di Belgrado la cerimonia di apertura del nuovo master in Appalti pubblici (master in Public procurement management – joint degree). L’offerta formativa è sviluppata dall’Università di Belgrado e dall’Università di Roma Tor Vergata. Si tratta di un master di secondo livello che prevede la concessione di un joint degree, ovvero un attestato riconosciuto da entrambe le Università. La sede amministrativa del master è a Belgrado, ma molti docenti saranno resi disponibili dalla facoltà romana. Il corso accademico, le cui lezioni iniziano questa settimana, è della durata di un anno e ha 34 studenti provenienti da 6 Paesi balcanici (Serbia, Croazia, Bosnia Erzegovina, ex Repubblica jugoslava di Macedonia, Montenegro, Bulgaria). Le lezioni si svolgono 5 giorni alla settimana con cadenza mensile.

Il master è basato sull’esperienza pluriennale dell’International master in public procurement management (Imppm) dell’Università di Tor Vergata, sostenuto dalla Banca europea per la ricostruzione e sviluppo (Bers), e frequentato principalmente da funzionari della pubblica amministrazione provenienti dai paesi dove opera la stessa Bers. Il master è indirizzato a studenti e professionisti della regione balcanica che, senza recarsi a Roma, potranno beneficiare di un titolo riconosciuto anche dall’Università italiana. Alla cerimonia gli italiani presenti sono stati il prof. Gustavo Piga (direttore Imppm), la prof.ssa Annalisa Castelli (vice direttrice Imppm), e la dott.ssa Giulia Di Pierro (presidente Alumni Imppm). La cerimonia è stata aperta dal rettore dell’Università di Belgrado, Vladimir Bumbasirevic, a cui sono seguiti gli interventi del ministro per la Pubblica amministrazione, Branko Ruzic, dell’ambasciatore d’Italia Giuseppe Manzo e della vice presidente della Banca europea per la ricostruzione e sviluppo (Bers), Betsy Nelson.

Il ministro Ruzic, come riportato dalla stampa locale, ha ringraziato i rappresentanti di Tor Vergata e della Bers che, in collaborazione con la facoltà di Belgrado, hanno realizzato un programma destinato “a contribuire alla riforma dell’amministrazione pubblica, alla diminuzione dell’economia sommersa e a una migliore gestione degli appalti pubblici nella regione”.

L’ambasciatore d’Italia a Belgrado, Giuseppe Manzo, ha dichiarato che tutte le iniziative e l’assistenza provenienti dall’Italia a sostegno della Serbia e del suo percorso europeo sono innanzitutto dirette alle esigenze concrete della cittadinanza. “Un sistema funzionante della pubblica amministrazione – ha detto Manzo – consente di risparmiare denaro pubblico, migliora le relazioni fra cittadini e istituzioni e sostiene l’attività delle aziende locali e straniere, come quelle italiane che a centinaia operano in Serbia”.

“Developing and Improving the capacities of public administrations to manage Public Procurement should be at the top of the agenda of every country.

Public procurement accounting for 15% of GDP in the European Union would be enough to explain the importance of the matter.

In fact a working Public Procurement system has a multiplied positive effect: it helps public budget to save money; through transparency it improves relations between citizens and public administration and institutions; it pushes competition that, in turn, helps to develop a stronger local business community and even a culture of business itself; and of course as the Ambassador of Italy which is a top foreign investor and trading partner of Serbia, I cannot not mention the positive effect of a working public procurement system on improving the business environment, not only for local companies but also for foreign investors. Italy have more than 500 companies here which employ 27thousand workers.. This gives you a clear idea on the incredible weight of public purchases in the economy of a Nation. Improving legislation and methods in this area will guarantee better value for money, will prevent corruption and foster competition and will attract internal and foreign investments.

You might have noticed that I did not mention the EU harmonization nor the accession negotiations. I did it on purpose, to show once again that when we talk about Europe and the European path of Serbia it is not a beaurocratic process linked to obscure technical obligations. Adopting and implementing a modern, transparent, efficient public procurement system might well be helpful to open/advance/close chapter X, Y, Z, but first of all it addresses concrete needs of ordinary citizens.

Italy is a strong supporter of Serbia’s EU path and a friend of Serbian people. We want the negotiations to go ahead, new chapters to be opened. Most of all we want, through this process, a Serbia with more prosperity, stability, a strong rule of law based life for its citizens.

Italy’s support is based on this concrete approach. On Tuesday I was in Trieste where our Ministers of Interiors talked about common actions against organized crime, actions that make our and your citizens safer. On that same day the two Minister of Foreign Affairs were meeting in Palermo to work on common strategies on the common challenge of migration. That very same day security and defense industry potential investment opportunities were the focus of the meeting between our two Ministers of Defense in Rome. Today and tomorrow your Minister of Culture is in Italy to see our best practices on how to better use the cultural and artistic heritage and make more profit with it. And only few days the Serbian Minister of Justice and the new Director of the Anticorruption Agency were in Rome to meet with their Italian colleague.

You see, fighting corruption, building a more independent and efficient judiciary, creating jobs from culture and art, preventing foreign threats and fighting crime: all initiatives and assistance by Italy to support Serbia on its European path are first directed at addressing issues related to concrete needs and demands of its citizens.

Italy is currently leading 5 so called twinning assistance projects financed by the European Union to harmonize Serbian laws and regulations with European ones. Some relate to agriculture, a key sector for Serbia, two are of crucial importance for the rule of law: one is “Prevention and Fight against Corruption”, the other one has just been awarded to Italy and will also address measures regarding pro-competitive tenders and the detection of collusive behavior in public procurement.

For all these reasons it is just natural that Italy, through University of Rome Tor Vergata, is here today to be part of this project. Tor Vergata, as certainly its esteemed professors will present, has a tremendous amount of experience in the field of public procurement. Starting from 2004 it has trained students and professionals, thanks to specific masters on national and European legislation and has developed partnerships with international financial organizations and companies. All this will now be added up to the know-how of the University of Belgrade, thus creating a unique center of excellence.

I wish all success to participants. I am sure the alumni of the Joint Master will be able to have a real impact on productivity, efficiency, transparency of their current and future workplaces.”
