Eurozone finance ministers reach preliminary agreement to increase spending – Reuters

Eurozone finance ministers have reached a preliminary agreement to boost spending if downside risks materialise, Reuters reported on Friday, citing three EU officials. 

"If downside risks were to materialise, fiscal responses should be differentiated, aiming for a more supportive stance at the aggregate level," the draft text read according to an official who had access to it, per Reuters.

The agreement is expected to be formalised at a meeting in Brussels on February 17th.
