Reuters reveals Italy to stick to 5.6% deficit target despite slashing growth outlook

Mario Draghi’s government is preparing to slash its growth forecast for this year to 2.8% from a previous 4.7% goal made in September, amid surging energy costs and turmoil linked to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
