The narrative of the left on Georgia Melons ugly, bad anti-European collapsed in no time. Now to spend important words for the Prime Minister is Christine Lagarde. “The fact that Italy has a female prime minister for the first time is very appropriate and timely,” said the president of the European Central Bank in a hearing before the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs.
“I wish you success in guiding the Italian economy – added Lagarde – because I believe it is in the interest of all Europeans and all Italians. I won’t comment on the political situation, I never do it for any country and I won’t do it now for Italy. Two things are very important to me. One is that significant progress has been made, especially in the last two years, in terms of structural reforms and improvements in the productivity of the Italian economy. And these structural measures will remain for the long term that will be necessary to demonstrate their efficiency for the economy”.
The second relevant thing for Lagarde is that the Italian economy “is the major beneficiary of the funds of the recovery and resilience plan and this in consideration of the Pnrr which includes a number of changes, reforms and measures that must take place. Our hope, from a monetary policy point of view, is that these measures will take place in a way that helps the Italian economy overcome the difficulties that began with the Covid pandemic. I think it’s a great opportunity – commented Lagarde – to demonstrate that, from a budgetary and structural point of view, there is great determination to push Italy to continue improving the economic situation”.
