Mr Paschal Donohoe, President of the Eurogroup and Minister for Public Expenditure, National Development Plan Delivery & Reform, will today, Monday 9th January 2023 travel to Rome to meet with Mr Giancarlo Giorgetti, Minister of Economy and Finance of Italy.
This meeting will be Minister Donohoe’s first European country visit since his re-election as President of the Eurogroup in December and his first visit to Italy since the appointment of the new Italian Government, in October 2022.
I am very much looking forward to engaging with Minister Giorgetti on my first visit to Rome since the formation of the new Italian Government. Although geopolitical developments and their economic consequences, in particular inflation, are affecting euro area countries differently, we all face similar challenges. Therefore, close coordination of national and European policies is more essential than ever. I will discuss with Minister Giorgetti the priorities of his government as well as our common work at the Eurogroup.
Paschal Donohoe, President of the Eurogroup
