The two agreements include the mutual exchange of communication, with full guarantees on confidentiality and anonymity according to the regions’ respective powers, as well as collaboration on training activities with the possibility of drafting a specific plan for City Council staff.

At the same time, it coincides with Act 2/2023 coming into force, regulating the protection of people reporting the infringement of rules and the fight against corruption.
