Renzi says EU like orchestra on Titanic (2)

Italian premier demands change to 'bureaucratic approach'

(ANSA) - Rome, February 10 - Premier Matteo Renzi has said in an interview with Bloomberg that "the European Union is like the orchestra that played on the Titanic (as it sank)". The Italian premier has repeatedly called on the EU to change direction to focus more on growth and employment and become less bureaucratic. "Today we have conducted reforms (at home) and we are in a position to be able to say to our European partners - 'friends, we can change this mistaken bureaucratic approach'," Renzi said.
