Press releases overview

Italy’s public debt sustainability 2.0: the effects of a new fiscal outlook

  • Italy has among the highest public debt levels within the EU, only topped by Greece
  • Yet, the ruling coalition plans to raise the fiscal deficit, questioning public debt sustainability
  • The new fiscal outlook leads to a substantial deviation from the previous trajectory of public debt normalization, yet is not as excessive to make public debt unsustainable
  • Public debt to GDP will decrease only very gradually over the medium-term which does not comply with EU regulations and, if not adjusted, may results in an excessive deficit procedure

  • The global economy continues to expand solidly with the business cycle accelerating in the United States and slowing down in the Euro Area as well as some emerging market economies
  • The economic outlook of the Central Eastern European region remains favorable, despite of emerging market turbulences. We project growth at 4.0 % (2018) and 3.5 % (2019) for CEE (ex Russia)
