Italy government will not backtrack over budget plan: Deputy PM

October 11, 2018

ROME (Reuters) – The Italian populist coalition government will not backtrack on its 2019 budget plan regardless of mounting market concern over its financial sustainability, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Thursday.

“We will not take step back. We’ll invest in jobs and economic growth,” Salvini said in an interview with Radio Radicale. He also said that lowering the retirement age must remain in the plan.
