October 20, 2018

MILAN (Reuters) – Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio on Saturday said the government would not backtrack on a plan to raise the country’s budget deficit to 2.4 percent of domestic output next year.

“I think I can speak for the whole government, I deny any rethinking of the 2.4 percent [goal],” he told journalists in Rome.
