Zepp-LaRouche, Italian Minister Geraci Address Milan Conference on Belt and Road

March 13, 2019 (EIRNS)—The following preliminary report from Liliana Gorini, chairwoman of the LaRouche-affiliated organization in Italy, was received today on a major conference in Milan, featuring Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche and Italian Undersecretary for Economic Development Michele Geraci:

The conference “Italy on the New Silk Road” organized by Movisol (LaRouche’s movement in Italy) and the Lombardy Region (state legislature) in Milan today was a success. The conference was opened by Undersecretary Michele Geraci (of the Italian government’s Task Force China), emphasizing the importance of the memorandum of understanding which Italy will sign with China’s President Xi Jinping on March 22 in Rome, and the benefits for Italy of this cooperation with China, including for the development of the Mezzogiorno.

Geraci was followed by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, who explained the more profound meaning of this important development for the rest of the world, the realization of the New Paradigm for which Lyndon LaRouche and the Schiller Institute have been working for the last 30 years.

There was a short message from Sen. Tony Iwobi, the first Nigerian-born legislator elected on the Lega slate last year, about the historical significance on the Transaqua project to refill Lake Chad. The project was then described in detail by Engineer Franco Persio Bocchetto of Bonifica, which is working on the feasibility study with PowerChina.

Liliana Gorini, chairwoman of Movisol, concluded the conference thanking the Lombardy Region which helped organize it, dedicating it to Lyndon LaRouche, who is known throughout Italy not only as the “visionary” of the New Silk Road, as former Economics Minister Giulio Tremonti defined him yesterday in an interview with Corriere della Sera, but also as the main promoter of Glass-Steagall bank separation and as designing the Four Laws of economics. She reminded her audience how many members of parliament had heard Lyndon LaRouche address the Italian Finance Committee in 1998, and had admitted years later that he was completely right.
