Italy entering a 'pivotal' year in economics, says Letta (ANSA) - Mexico City, January 13 - Italy is entering a "pivotal" year in its economic development, and for the first time in a long time is not facing a financial crisis, Premier Enrico Letta said Monday during a State visit to Mexico.

"2014 is for us a pivotal year, the first year that does not open with a financial emergency and we can talk about opportunities for reform and growth," said Letta, whose trip is aimed at drumming up investment. "We must and can make up for the delays of the past," he added in an interview with Mexican television network Televisa.
