Italy must take EU report into account says Dombrovskis

'We expect proposals on macroeconomic imbalances'

(ANSA) - Brussels, February 24 - Italy like other EU member States must take into account a forthcoming European Commission report on macroeconomic imbalances when it plans its 2017 budget and reforms, European Commissioner for the Euro Valdis Dombrovskis said Wednesday. "We expect Italy to come up with proposals on how to deal with those imbalances," he said.
    The country-by-country reports on macroeconomic imbalances "are usually reflected in national reform and budget plans, which must be submitted to Brussels by April," said the commissioner and EC vice president.
    "Member States provide their assessment of the challenges they face, and we hope our reports can assist (them) in their preparation," Dombrovskis said. "This is exactly the case of Italy," he added.
