.THE PRESIDENT OF SAPAR DOMENICO DISTANTE SUMS UP THE SECTOR,
INTERVIEWED AT ENADA BY AGIMEG

Rimini, 1st October 2020 - At approximately 100 days from the reopening after the lockdown, the president of SAPAR Domenico Distante summed up the situation the gaming sector had experienced.

Interviewed this morning at ENADA by journalist Claudio Ramoni of Agimeg, on the topic ´100 days of lockdown, 100 days of reopening´, Distante ran through the dramatic phases of the closure due to the Covid-19, which had an impact that was ´not high, but very high for industry members, some of whom, unfortunately, didn´t manage to reopen. I hope that in the future we manage to reach serenity as far as taxes and work are concerned, in which the regulations are respected and everyone knows what to do.´

It is necessary ´to work as a team and not want to be at the centre of attention, for the good of the whole sector´, was stressed several times by the SAPAR president, who also expects new regulations that are valid for everybody. ´I respect everyone´s role´, said Distante, ´but we must listen to each other´, hoping for ´the organization of a work table that brings together all the sector´s players to start taking action on reorganization at national level.´

´It was important to restart, also with this expo, and I wish to thank IEG and the exhibiting companies: if we were not here, we would still just be talking about a sector on its knees, but, on the contrary, we can say that we have re-started, even if slowly.´ September´s figures are also quite encouraging.

On the topic of legality . we must remember that during the period in which legal businesses were closed, several illegal operations were discovered by the Finance Police -, the president of SAPAR reminded that the association he represents ´defends legal gaming every day. We are partners of the State.´
