Forex Flash:Italian PM Letta visits Berlin - Deutsche bank

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Jim Reid of Deutsche Bank notes that Enrico Letta will make his first official visit to Berlin today as Italy’s Prime Minister.

He comments that PM Letta will meet with Mrs Merkel today and a joint press conference is expected at 6pm Berlin time, adding, “This is then followed by a dinner meeting so we’ll see if we get any interesting headlines this evening.” PM Letta yesterday said that Italy will find strategies to boost growth without compromising the necessary process of restructuring public finances.

PM Letta is also proposed lowering payroll taxes to boost employment.
