'Italians pay 29 bn euros more taxes than EU average'-update

More reform, less tweeting, says Confartigianato

(ANSA) - Milan, May 20 - Italians will pay a total of 29 billion euros more in taxes than the average in the European Union, according to figures Wednesday from Confartigianato artisans' association.
    This year, average per capita will be 476 euros above EU average, making Italy the seventh highest-taxed country in the EU and comprising 43.4% of 2015 GDP, it said.
    The group urged the Italian government to spend more time pushing through concrete economic reforms to hasten growth and less time boasting on Twitter accounts.
    "We cannot settle for some tweets," said association president Giorgio Merletti.
