New restrictive anti-covid measures in 2021 and 2022? “In formulating the forecast for the remainder of this year and next year we assume that there are no new restrictions on economic activities and movement of people.” This was stated by the Minister of Economy, Daniele Franco, during the hearing on the Nadef which takes place in the Budget Committees of the Chamber and Senate. “If the pandemic resumes for any reason, these numbers would be jeopardized,” adds the minister. “This year we are growing a lot ” and” the growth rate in 2023-24 will hopefully be very high “even if this year’s + 6% ” is unrepeatable. But higher growth rates than in previous decades I think it is a target for 2022-23-24-25-26 and subsequent years “, explains the minister, who continues:” We expect to recover the pre-crisis level of GDP in the second quarter of 2022. So a quarter earlier than we expected to recover that level “.
