ROME (Reuters) - Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini reiterated on Tuesday that the government will not backtrack on its expansionary budget plans and said he was sure they would create jobs and attract investment.

“We are not going to turn back,” Salvini told reporters in Lyon, France, in remarks posted on Facebook. He said “serious economic operators” would invest in Italy when they had read the budget plan and understood it would boost economic growth and employment, while cutting taxes.
