Time Italy reforms institutions, rules says Audit Court (See related) (ANSA) - Rome, February 14 - Now is the time for Italy to implement reforms to its economy and institutions, Raffaele Squitieri, head of the national Audit Court, said Friday.

This year, the country must demonstrate new skill in reforming its institutions and rules so as to benefit the entire country, he said.

That means looking beyond budget restraint measures to find "projects of significant strategic interest," he added.

That is also something that would be helpful for the European Union as a whole to consider, said Squitieri.
