Just do more random checks
Well that $5.1bn is a lot closer to reality than previous numbers*. But since these are fake imported goods from China, why does it need a commissioner, why not just make more random inspections of goods being imported from China?
Counterfeiting is the hot topic now, drug companies can see a way to sell cheap in one market and expensive in another and block trade between the two markets under the guise of 'protecting again counterfeit goods'. No substance brand names (badging operations that import Chinese goods and badge them as their own) see a way to prevent competitors importing the same goods.
If you create a Commissions for Counterfeiting, the issue of counterfeiting will simply be hijacked into another market protection scheme, he needs to create new laws to justify his position, but the laws are fine, it's just the number of inspections that need to be improved.
*Italy 2005 imports were 3,454,957,000 US$ equivalent. The US random inspections of imports found that 0.06% were counterfeit goods by value:
There's no reason Italy would be more or less than any other developed country, so 0.06% is a reasonable figure, i.e. about $2 billion, rather than $5.1bn but still quite a plausible number.
