Italy growing more than other countries says Meloni

Premier Giorgia Meloni hailed Italy’s economic performance in a message to the assembly of insurers association Ania on Tuesday.
“The Italian economy is growing more than those of other European nations, despite the slowdown in the world economy and the delicate international situation,” Meloni said.
“The national macroeconomic data is positive and the trends of some indicators, from employment growth to the increase in investment, represent important signs of confidence in the future of our economy.
“The government is determined to make the most of these signals, and to give continuity to them”.

National statistics agency Istat said Italy’s GDP rose by 0.3% in the first quarter and it forecast growth of 1% this year.
