Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, was in Rome on 27 May 2013. He met with Carlo Trigilia, Italian Minister for Territorial Cohesion, and with Fabrizio Saccomanni, Italian Minister for Economy and Finance.
Johannes Hahn called on national Ministers, regional representatives and civil servants from across Italy to improve the way regional funds are managed. He urged them to act urgently so EU investments, one of Italy's only sources of public investment in the crisis, can support job creation and growth: in particular to tackle youth unemployment.
