EU tells Italy to step up reforms to spur growth

BRUSSELS, March 23 (Reuters) - Italy should prepare an ambitious reform programme to address the country’s economic weaknesses, the European Commission vice president said on Thursday, on the eve of a visit to Rome to discuss Italy’s budget.

“We expect an ambitious national reform programme,” Valdis Dombrovskis told a news conference in Brussels, noting that the reforms should tackle Italy’s high level of public and private debt and low productivity. (Reporting by Francesco Guarascio; editing by Philip Blenkinsop)
