Italy minister confirms deficit-GDP set at 2.4 pct from 2019-2021

ROME, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Italy’s government has targeted the budget deficit to remain stable at 2.4 percent of gross domestic product for each year from 2019 to 2021, Justice Minister Alfonso Bonafede said on Thursday, confirming comments from government sources.

The targets appear to flout European Union rules calling for Italy to progressively lower its deficit.
