Measures include streamlined civil court system

Growth package approved by parliament

(ANSA) - Rome, August 3 - A decree to help boost Italy's sluggish growth was approved in the Senate on Friday. Industry Minister Corrado Passera said the package strikes at "the country's weak points". The decree is part of a series of measures and structural reforms, including liberalisations and changes to the labour market, Premier Mario Monti's emergency government of non-political technocrats is introducing to revitalize the sluggish national economy. Included in the package are incentives for home improvements, a fund supporting technological innovation and research, and also measures to speed up the civil court system by reducing the number of cases permitted for appeals. Passera said it will "give the necessary impetus to the economy of a country that has not grown in many years".
