MILAN (Reuters) – Rating agency S&P Global (NYSE:) said on Monday that the birth of a new government in Italy led by former European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi would not have immediate impact on the country’s credit quality. The new cabinet last week easily won a confidence vote by both branches of Italy’s parliament, as Draghi called on Italians to pull together to help rebuild the country following the coronavirus pandemic and promised sweeping reforms to revitalise the battered economy.
S&P Global said in a statement that expectations were high that the new government could reform Italy’s economy, fiscal framework and judiciary but added that it had only two years to achieve such goals, as next general elections would take place in 2023.
