Premier Giuseppe Conte’s government has proposed bring the deficit down to 2.04% to stop the EU opening an infringement procedure. “Dialogue between the European Commission and Italy about the 2019 budget is continuing,” EC spokesperson Margaritis Schinas said.

“Commissioners (Valdis) Dombrovskis and (Pierre) Moscovici are in touch with (Italian Economy) Minister (Giovanni) Tria. “The Commission will decide on the next steps on the basis on this dialogue”.

The government’s budget bill will return to the Senate’s budget committee on Tuesday. The examination of the package on the floor of the Upper House looks set to be postponed for several days.
