Message of congratulations of President Barroso to the new Prime Minister of Italy, Mr Matteo Renzi

"Prime Minister,

On behalf of the European Commission I would like to congratulate you on your appointment as Prime Minister and on the formation of the new Government, which has received Parliament’s full confidence.

Your government takes office in the run up to two events of particular importance to the European Union and to Italy: the election of the European Parliament in May, and the Italian presidency of the Council, which begins in July.

In the speech you have made setting out your programme of government I am happy to see your commitment to the economic, monetary and political integration of the European Union, and I have every confidence in the contribution that the Italian government will be making towards the measures necessary to revive growth and employment.

I am convinced that relations between the new government and the European Commission will be fruitful and constructive, underpinned as they are by your country’s tradition of promoting our common founding values.

I wish you every success in your new and weighty responsibilities."
