EU News 421/2013
Brussels, 2 October 2013
Responding to questions from media on the latest political developments in Italy, President Barroso declared:
"The Commission continues to believe that political stability is vital for Italy and it is therefore very positive that the Italian government will be able to continue uninterrupted with the reforms it has embarked on. It is indeed crucial to avoid an artificial political crisis which can undermine investor confidence in Italy's economic recovery efforts. This is of decisive importance, not only for Italy, but also for the Eurozone and the EU as a whole."
