ROME, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Economy Minister Giovanni Tria said
on Friday a sharp reduction in the government's budget deficit,
as demanded by the European Commission, would be suicide for
Italy's economy.
Speaking alongside the head of the Eurogroup Mario Centeno,
Tria said he had no intention at present of changing Italy's
contested 2019 budget and added that EU concerns over the
expansionary package were unfounded.
