These imbalances include high debt, low competitiveness and inadequate structural adjustments. Further steps will be decided in June, the EC said. P”Italy must address its very high level of public debt and weak external competitiveness,” the EC said. “Both are ultimately rooted in the country’s protracted sluggish productivity growth and require urgent and decisive action to reduce the risk of adverse effects on the Italian economy and of the euro area”./PIMG id=mediaViewer title=”” alt=”” src=”http://www.mineralmuseum.eu/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/wpid-trasp73.gif”ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
