'Doubting Thomases will be proved wrong on growth'
Recovery by EP elections says Letta23 December, 13:56
Letta said he was "convinced" the outlook for 2014 was "positive".
After its longest postwar downturn Italy posted zero growth in the third quarter of 2013, prompting some to see the first green shoots of recovery, although others disagreed.
Letta said GDP would pick up by the European Parliament elections at the end of May.
