EU not only about finance, also labor, says Letta

Italian premier calls for action, not words

EU not only about finance, also labor, says Letta

Rome, June 14 - The European Union is not simply about numbers and finance, it must also have a role in managing labor issues, Italian Premier Enrico Letta said on Friday. Letta said that he was "extremely satisfied" with the meeting to take place in Rome on Friday among labor and economy ministers from France, Germany, Spain and Italy to discuss the struggling employment market throughout the eurozone. "Europe is not only about numbers and finance ministries, but also about the battle against unemployment," Letta said speaking at a conference of prefects in Rome. The Italian premier emphasised that what is needed is action not words. "We will not settle for words or declarations...that is the problem with Europe today that has distanced institutions from citizens," Letta said.
