Rome, May 27 - Premier Enrico Letta told a meeting
with regional governors on Monday that the bulk of the measures
that the EU plans to take to combat unemployment will not be
passed until December's summit of European leaders.
Combatting unemployment, especially among young people,
will be a central issue at next month's EU summit after Letta
requested it be put at the top of the agenda.
But the premier expects the upcoming summit to only give
broad political support to focusing on unemployment, which has
reached record highs of over 11% in Italy.
Concrete steps, such as measures that would exempt
investments to promote jobs from deficit calculations, will not
come until the end of the year, after this autumn's general
election in Germany.
"The premier explained to us that the big European
decisions regarding employment will probably be taken in
December and that in June there will only be a political green
light," a source at Monday's meeting said.
The sources added, however, that Letta was confident the
June summit would be able to bring forward the start of a 'youth
guarantee' plan that would see six billion euros invested across
the union in getting young people into work.
Almost four out of 10 Italians aged 15-to-24 who are not in
education are unemployed.
