Italian economy needs more work, says Audit Court
Improving financial conditions do not spell full recovery14 February, 12:56
A lowering of interest rates is a good sign but does not mean that the economy is back on its feet, warned Raffaele Squitieri, president of the court.
"The signs of easing of financial tensions do not rule out the fact that much work remains to be done to revive the economy," said Squitieri.
"The economic environment is still difficult," he added.
The Italian economy is finally emerging from its deepest recession since the post-war period.
