Italy GDP growth under 1% after Brexit (3)

But still hypothetical consequences, in 2017 +1%

(ANSA) - Rome, May 15 - Italian GDP growth may fall just below 1% this year because of Brexit although the exact consequences are still "hypothetical," the Bank of Italy said Friday. It said growth should be "around 1%" next year. Growth will slow in the second half of this year, the central bank said. The UK's referendum vote to leave the EU is set to have ripple effects in the world economy including the British economy, international agencies have said. The Bank of Italy said Brexit's effect will be less on Italy than on other economies.
