Luxembourg’s Juncker Says Italy Has to Implement Measures

November 09, 2011

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, who leads the group of euro-area finance ministers, said Italy has to implement measures.

“Italy has not only to announce but to implement measures,” Juncker told reporters in Lisbon today after meeting with Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho.

Juncker said he does not think Portugal needs a higher amount than the 78 billion euros that were agreed for the country’s financial aid program earlier this year.
