Rome, May 23 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta on
Thursday said that after slashing benefits for ministers and
MPs, "we will continue down this path by eliminating public
funding for parties, reducing the number of MPs" and by making
other institutional reforms.
Speaking at the annual assembly for the powerful
Confindustrial employers' confederation, Letta said that
government and industry "are on the same side".
"Politics, perhaps too late, has come to learn its lesson,
but now it needs to apply what it has learned," he added.
The government of Italy is increasingly looking to measures
they hope will stimulate growth after austerity measures have
been blamed for driving the country into its worst recession in
decades.
Letta, who was named premier last month, has been given
what many see as an impossible task of reversing the country's
economic woes and making critical reforms while at the head of
an unprecedented and highly volatile left-right coalition
government.
"I know only one thing: the mission is difficult, and I
feel all the pressure and expectations weighing on my back," he
said.
"I don't know if we'll make it, but will give it our all".
