Italy

Since late 2011, Italy has introduced significant structural reforms while making progress in fiscal consolidation. The economy has re-entered recession, under pressure from weak European economies and the short-term consequences of fiscal tightening. Activity seems likely to continue to decline over the next year but will turn up in late 2013. Assumed rising oil prices and another increase in VAT will lead to temporarily higher inflation, but underlying price increases are moderate.
