2014 will be year of growth says Letta (ANSA) - Rome, December 23 - Next year will be a year of growth, Premier Enrico Letta said ahead of a confidence vote on the 2014 budget Monday. Letta said "lessons learned" in 2013 would be "useful" to forge policy to help Italy's timid recovery from its longest recession since WWII.

The budget has been criticised for not doing enough to stimulate the economy but Letta has said it is the first for years that, while sticking to European fiscal constraints, lowers taxes a bit.
