European Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis confirmed that an agreement is made with Italy regarding 2019 budget. He tweeted that “A lot of hard work and negotiation went into finding solution on the Italian budget. Let’s face it: the solution on the table is not ideal. But it allows us to avoid an Excessive Deficit Procedure at this stage, provided that the agreed measures are fully implemented.”

He added that “I hope this solution would also be the basis for balanced budgetary & economic policies in Italy. Italy urgently needs to restore confidence in its economy to ease financial conditions and support investment. Ultimately, this is what will support purchasing power of all Italians.”
