Italian Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri said on Thursday he was confident economic growth would match the government’s official forecast of 0.6% in 2020.

“We think we will get our forecast for 0.6 in 2020. Of course we want to do better,” he told Bloomberg TV in an interview.

He also said the ruling coalition was committed to maintaining government stability despite the resignation of Luigi Di Maio as head of the co-governing 5 Star Movement.
