The EU has confirms the Italian
government's commitment to modernising Italy, Premier Giorgia
Meloni said after the European Commission gave the green light
to the fourth tranche of Italy's National Recovery and
Resilience Plan (NRRP) Tuesday.
"The Commission's positive assessment demonstrates the great progress made by Italy and, just a few days after the European Commission's approval of the general revision of the NRRP, confirms the government's great commitment to fully implement the NRRP to make the country more modern and more competitive", she said in a video on social media.
She noted: "The Commission today approved Italy's fourth payment request, for EUR 16.5 billion, confirming that Italy has met all 28 objectives and targets set".
"The payment of the EUR 16.5 billion is expected by the end of this year. Italy will have received about EUR 102 billion by 2023, so more than half of the NRRP. Italy will also be the only EU Member State to have received the payment of the fourth instalment".
