Pietro Salini (Salini Impregilo) - The challenges facing entrepreneurs in the global market:
“In such a complex geopolitical and economic context, the major challenge for each entrepreneur to face is building a firm in a constantly changing global market, in which not only you need to be competitive, but you also need to be fast in responding to the market and to always new needs", stated Pietro Salini, CEO of Salini Impregilo, in his speech at the First Workshop of the new Centre of research on infrastructure promoted by ISPI and McKinsey&Company, and in collaboration with Salini Impregilo and the European Investment Bank.
"Only a strategic and long-term vision of the country will allow us to respond to the challenges throw down by the megatrends that rule the epochal changes we are witnessing in a very short time, such as the increase in population, the resource scarcity and the increasing urbanization, alongside the formation of megacities interconnected in megaregions".
"The large infrastructure projects", concluded the CEO of the Group, present in more than 50 countries and engaging more than 35.000 employees, "not only they raise because of the growth and the socio-economic development of a country, but they also represent a key factor in defining future geopolitical assets and related risks for the global equilibria, with repercussions in terms of welfare, security and prosperity".
