Public investment must return to 3% of GDP - Tria

Economy minister says necessary to recoup lost ground

(ANSA) - Milan, September 18 - Economy Ministry Giovanni Tria told the Blooomberg Forum in Milan on Tuesday that "public investment must return to being 3% of GDP in the short term" to make up for lost ground in recent years. He also said it was necessary to ensure that Italy's middle classes pay less tax.
    "It is necessary to go beyond the (government's proposed) flat tax," Tria said.
    "We are at an advanced stage in a study to reduce the tax burden on the middle class while maintaining a manageable budget".
