France on Italy

The Italian government announced last week that all electricity, gas and water contracts will be cancelled in 2010 and put out for tender. Yesterday I had a meeting with a French water company which does some business in Italy and I asked them what they thought of that recent statement. The Finance Director replied, "Ah, Italy...a great place for a holiday but very difficult for business!"

Hard to know how they are going to maske that work. After all, the people who own the generating stations or the reservoirs kind of have the whip hand....

Not sure if you'll like this WW - but the French take your money and never smile whilst doing it. The Ialians, on the other hand, do it so nicely with such charm that one really doesn't mind being fleeced.
