'We kept our word on labour reform' Poletti tells EU

'Positive response from business sector' says labour minister

(ANSA) - Brussels, March 9 - Italy has kept its word on labour-market reform, Labour Minister Giuliano Poletti told EU labour ministers on Monday.
    "We committed to...intervening in labour-market regulation and today we can say to our European colleagues that (the Jobs Act) has gone into effect," Poletti said.
    The minister added he is "glad because I keep seeing business confirming its willingness to hire".
    Today is the first day the new labour law is being applied, Poletti told his EU peers.
    "In this way we will have more certainty for business, more protections for employees, and a more dynamic economy," he said.
