Italy open to multinationals says Renzi - update

'Globalisation must become a friend' says PM at L'Oreal plant

(ANSA) - Turin, September 17 - Italy wants to attract multinationals and must now see globalisation as a friend rather than an enemy, Premier Matteo Renzi said Wednesday.
    "Italy is open to multinationals," he said on a visit to the Settimo Torinese plant of L'Oreal, one of the French cosmetics global leader's biggest facilities outside France. "For years we have thought that globalisation was the enemy of Italy while it is a friend," he said on his way out of the factory, alluding to government plans to lure foreign groups with its privatisation programme. Renzi said it was important to "keep small and medium-sized businesses together and at the same time attract multinationals".
