Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni stated this at a bilateral conference on Ukraine’s reconstruction in Rome, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"In 2025, Italy wants to host the large-scale Ukraine Recovery Conference on its territory. I am very glad to announce this and want to give a new impetus to the process of rebuilding the destroyed, starting with energy structures," she said.
Meloni emphasized that Russia destroyed the strategic infrastructure of the civilian population “to bring it to its knees.”
The Italian prime minister noted that Italy should work to restore the infrastructure objects that were destroyed: streets, bridges, schools, healthcare facilities. In this context, Meloni said that the SACE export credit agency, which is controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, is ready to operate again in Ukraine within the framework of international financial support, including for strategic projects in the energy sector, and is ready to resume projects halted in 2022 due to war.
Meloni also called on the Italian private sector to support Ukraine's economic recovery.
