Backing the mandate, Deputy Minister for the Economy Maurizio Leo expressed the government’s intention to finalise the approval before the summer break in August. At the start of the year, Leo was assigned to lead a delegation drafting reforms to modernise the Italian gambling market.

Upon receiving its final approval, the government anticipates a timeline of 18-24 months for drafting the implementation of decree reforms.
