Draghi: Economy growing more than expected

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said on Thursday that the country's economy is growing "much more than expected."

Draghi praised the vaccination efforts, noting that 80% of the population is likely to be inoculated by the end of the month, including many young people. Therefore, he stressed schools will be able to open "with less uncertainty."

However, the prime minister noted that he expects the first half of 2022 to be crucial in showing whether the Italian economy can transform and become more structurally solid following the pandemic.
