#ECON Structural reforms should take place simultaneously across the EU member states, said @PierCarloPadoan, Italy's FinMin during a dialogue with the economic committee of the European Parliament. Currently he is presenting the priorities of the Italian presidency of the Council of the EU. One of the main pillars of the Italian programme for the next 6 months is structural reforms

Adelina Marini #IT2014EU Padoan: I have always believed that the EU problems with growth have existed long before the crisis
22 July 2014 09:30
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: The way out of huge debt is growth
22 July 2014 09:31
Adelina Marini Elisa Ferreira, MEP (Portugal, S&D): We are watching the #IT2014EU with hope because it seems "enlightened" with what it should be done
22 July 2014 09:34
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: Reforms need to be country-specific. In some countries the public administration doesn't work, in others it is the judiciary and in a third group, Italy in particular, the reform of labour market is extremely important
22 July 2014 09:37
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU Bernd Lucke, ECR (Germany): There seems to be a trend to weaken the rules and to make budget deficits look smaller via some form of alternative accounting
22 July 2014 09:43
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: Creative accounting is something we should avoid. What I mean is countries that apply structural reforms to be given more time because reforms take time to deliver results. Not 1 year but 2-3
22 July 2014 09:45
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU Dimitris Papadimoulis (SYRIZA, #Greece): Matteo #Renzi gave us hope 20 days ago but your speech today is a hard landing because of the Merkel dogma
22 July 2014 09:51
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: The programme I've presented you today is the agenda of the Italian presidency and government
22 July 2014 09:53
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: Regarding the #FTT the intention of the Italian presidency is an agreement to be reached on a roadmap which allows a gradual, step-by-step introduction of the FTT so the issue of the extent of coverage is agreed. At that stage I am personally confident that once agreement is reached ans is implemented this will create an interest in other MS now not involved in that
22 July 2014 09:58
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: Structural reforms have impact over the macro economic performance of a country, over its budget evolution, over the neighbouring countries. Flexibility means to be clear why we need it
22 July 2014 10:03
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Italian MEPs criticise @PierCarloPadoan for not being as "passionate" as PM #Renzi. Padoan: The difference between Mr Renzi and a finance minister I will not dwell. Mr Renzi's programme is centred around reforms and the election results show this has been approved
22 July 2014 10:16
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU @MaleticIvana (EPP, #Croatia): Will you encourage governments to do smart fiscal consolidation not simply make cuts to meet the set targets?
22 July 2014 10:32
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: It's very important to weigh the short-term benefits with the long-term costs. Countries should avoid finding themselves in a situation of heavy market pressure
22 July 2014 10:35
Adelina Marini #IT2014EU #Padoan: The euro area external representation is not among the Italian Presidency priorities but I will encourage a serious debate on how to achieve that
