Election debrief: what Meloni means for Italy

Election debrief: what Meloni means for Italy

Roundtable   Rome   
  Wed 16 Nov 2022 10:45 - 12:30

Following Mario Draghi’s resignation as prime minister, Italians delivered a decisive snap election victory to a coalition led by Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy. Amid war on the European continent, rising energy prices, a global economic slowdown and the highest rates of inflation for 40 years, an untimely test of European unity may beckon.

What is the macroeconomic outlook for Italy? What will central bank independence look like under Prime Minster Meloni? Do its planned €80bn spending measures and revisions to the €200bn Covid-19 recovery fund put Rome in conflict with Brussels?

This election debrief explores what Meloni means for Italy and the state of the Italian economy. Speakers will analyse Italy’s investment future after Draghi in the context of the green transition, and assess how the new government is set to navigate global and domestic challenges.
