Investor interest 'spur' to govt action says Letta (ANSA) - Doha, February 3 - Investor interest is a "spur" for the government to push ahead with moves to make Italy a more attractive place for foreign investment, Premier Enrico Letta said in Doha Monday. "I found a very strong, positive welcome in Doha, a spur to go forward, said Letta, who has lined up a Destination Italy programme to overcome investor wariness.

Letta, who is on a mission in the Persian Gulf to drum up interest to help the Italian economy out of its longest postwar recession, said investors would be particularly interested in a raft of privatisations the government has lined up.
