EU, Gentiloni: “New stability pact is not perfect but it is a good compromise”

MILANO – “We have a lot of work to do to fix existing tax rules, rules that were so strict that they were often not enforced. What we have achieved is not perfect. It’s a good compromise. The compromise reached during the trilogue is the result of everyone’s determination to progress and improve the current legislative framework”. This was stated by the EU Commissioner for Economic Affairs Paolo Gentiloni speaking in the Plenary on the Stability Pact.
