Italy poverty up, boost corruption fight - OECD (3)

Anti-poverty programmes haven't worked

(ANSA) - New York, March 19 - The OECD said in a report for today's financial G20 in Buenos Aires that Italian poverty had risen and Rome's fight against corruption should be boosted. In the last 10 years, it said, poverty had risen especially among young people, "reflecting the ineffectiveness of anti-poverty programmes".
    It said "progress on the front of reforms depends on a capacity to restore confidence by improving the efficiency of the public administration and the fight against corruption".
