Italy decisive for Stability Pact agreement - Gentiloni

Italy decisive for Stability Pact agreement - Gentiloni

'In deficit correction paths NRRP investments acknowledged'

Redazione ANSA




Italy played a decisive role in reaching agreement on the European Stability and Growth Pact, the new fiscal rules replacing the old pact suspended in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, European Commissioner for the Economy Paolo Gentiloni said on Wednesday. "Italy contributed significantly, I would say decisively, especially in the very last phase, together with France and Germany, to reach this agreement," said Gentiloni.
    "I think some aspects (of the Pact) are very important for Italy," he added.
    These concern "the deficit correction path, which takes into account higher interest rate costs, the recognition of the importance of investments in the NRRP to achieve a longer period of adjustment and the recognition of the importance of defence spending," continued Gentiloni.
    The Italian commissioner also said the agreement is "good news" for the European economy, but that "the journey is not over yet".
    "In January we will have to move on to the next stage, that of the trialogues (informal discussions between the European Parliament, Council and Commission to finalise the text, ed.), and I am confident that the same spirit of constructiveness and compromise that led us to today's successful outcome will guide us to a successful conclusion of the final stages," he said.
    If all goes to plan the new Stability Pact will enter into force in spring 2024.
    "There is no time to lose," EU Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis told reporters after the ECOFIN meeting.
