Adelina Marini #ECON The indicators show raising moods on the financial markets. Of course, the crisis is not over yet, but the behaviour of the markets is optimistic, said Mr Grilli in the beginning of the debates.
21 January 2013 15:18
Adelina Marini #Italy committed to an extraordinary plan for structural reforms under recommendations from the Commission and we succeeded to do that, Grilli said. He presented a forecast for economic growth of circa 1% as of 2014.

Adelina Marini #ECON #Italy today is much different than before, the Italian FinMin shared.
21 January 2013 15:23
Adelina Marini #ECON The chairing the meeting of the economic committee WOlf Kolnz recalled that currently #Italy is governed by a bureaucratic government that hoped that MEPs will ask a lot about the upcoming elections next month.
21 January 2013 15:31
Adelina Marini #ECON French MEP Jean-Paul Gauzes (EPP) asked Vittorio Grilli asked how come the financial markets calmed down given that no reform has been implemented yet. The Italian FinMin answered saying that initially the crisis was a crisis of confidence.
21 January 2013 15:34
Adelina Marini #ECON The balancing of #Italy's budget is not 0 in nominal terms, but according to the cycle, so if the economic situation were to deteriorate, there is space for manoeuvre, Grilli said.
21 January 2013 15:41
Adelina Marini #ECON Many of the tough and severe measures that have been undertaken were inevitable, Vottorio Grilli said.
21 January 2013 15:48
Adelina Marini #ECON It's unpleasant that we had to face the crisis with so little choice what kind of measures to undertake, the Italian FinMin added.
21 January 2013 15:50
Adelina Marini #ECON It's impossible to have a reasonable growth strategy without stabilising financial markets first. It's the same as building a house on sands, Vittorio Grilli said.
21 January 2013 16:00
Adelina Marini #ECON The situation with tax evasion is very serious, as in some countries the problem is bigger than in others. Regretfully, in Italy tax evasion is above average, the Italian FinMin shared. This is not simply a matter of less revenues to finance social programmes, but it is a matter of fairness.
21 January 2013 16:05
Adelina Marini #ECON Wolf Klinz proposed as a step towards tackling tax evasion in #Italy putting to jail the former PM of the country (Berlusconi) for tax evasion. He pointed out that was a personal opinion of his. Klinz is a German MEP from the group of ALDE.
21 January 2013 16:08
Adelina Marini #ECON The issue of a two-speed Europe will drop off by itself when, thanks to the deep reforms we are now undertaking because of the crisis, we will reach convergence which is also enshrined in the Treaty, Grilli said responding to a Romanian MEP.
21 January 2013 16:12
Adelina Marini Wolf Klinz asked Grilli to what extent the statements of one of the main opponents of Mario Monti - Socialist Bersani - that in case of electoral victory he would renegotiate all the agreements on EU level, including the fiscal compact, are part of the electoral tactics or a reality. Vittorio Grilli said that the rules for fiscal discpline are already part of Italy's Constitution the amendment of which requires such a majority that is rare in usual parliaments.
21 January 2013 16:22
Adelina Marini #ECON Italian MEP Gianni Pitello corrected Klinz quoting Bersani saying he did not want to renegotiate all the agreement, among which the fiscal compact, but only that he wants growth measures in parallel.
21 January 2013 16:28
Adelina Marini #ECON Quite on time ended the hearing of Vittorio #Grilli in the economic committee of the European Parliament, unlike the debates before that with Jean-Claude Juncker, Wolfgang Schaeuble and Pierre Moscovici, when the time of an hour and a half was not enough for the MEPs to ask all of their questions.
