TUCMUN 2012 – Position Paper for the European Union

Delegation from
The Republic of Italy

Position Paper for the European Union

Economic recession is a global reality; Europe is not the only one suffering. The European Union once again discusses resolutions to the further development of financial safeguards against future crises, as well as protecting the EU’s global prestige. As a founding member, the Repubblica Italiana feels the consoling sense of familiarity, and hopes to partake in a purposeful committee session with fellow delegates.

I. Further Development of Financial Safeguards under Future Crises

Italy recognizes that prolonged debt sparks a chain reaction of anxiety among fellow nations. However, Italy also believes that depression paves way for amelioration.

The Italian Delegation is troubled to hear fellow delegates suggesting alternatives such as sanctioning. Instead, she strongly encourages the continuation of collaboration of fellow European Union members. Is support not one of the aims of this committee? Such a committee was established with the intention of creating a continental community, not solely for self-seeking endeavors. A mental deadline seems to alarm the majority of members; however, in order to persevere, haste is a misleading answer. Italy speaks not only for herself, but for many others, when she expresses that financial aid is critical, because as the world has already witnessed, the fall of even one federal economy affects the status of the euro, which in turn affects us all.

Furthermore, the Republic of Italy proposes the expansion of trade. Italy is situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, a perfect opportunity to take initiative in a potential economic reliever. She believes that there is a future in continental and international trade, which will improve financial competence while simultaneously strengthening foreign relations. As a major exporter of the fashion and automobile industry, the Repubblica Italiana is qualified to facilitate this promising fiscal and social approach.

The Italian Republic views the economic crisis as a reflective transition. In 1999, the euro was introduced to combine the continental interests of the market. Italy intends to uphold this purpose. If this recession is to be the last straw, the aim of the euro renders futile.

II. Protecting the EU’s Global Prestige

The Delegation of Italy believes firmly in the importance of international trade. The trust that underlies the foundations of liaisons plays a crucial role in the standings of respective countries. The European Union’s sinking reputation malevolently impacts this progression.

Italy wishes to maintain her ties with nations outside of the European Union, such as Canada, Mexico and Peru. She also identifies the Islamic Republic of Iran an ongoing, successful trade partner; trade within Asia is valuable, as the rapidly shifting market facilitates many opportunities. Moreover, the Republic of Italy wishes to strengthen ties with the United States of America, another potential and worldly North American ally. Via establishing a network for such exchanges, Italy believes that enhancement of foreign relations is achievable.

The Repubblica Italiana suggests that the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) gather to formulate short term and long term strategies. In this way, the collective presence of worldwide delegates can become conscientious of an agreed agenda. Most importantly, such assemblies prevent misunderstandings and promote contribution as well as compromise.
