Latest actual data: 2013
Fiscal assumptions: Fiscal projections incorporate the government’s announced fiscal policy, as outlined in the draft 2015 Stability Law adjusted for different growth outlooks and estimated impact of measures. Sovereign yields have fallen significantly since the 2015 Stability Law was passed and staff have assumed that the savings from a lower interest bill will be used to pay down debt.  Estimates of the cyclically adjusted balance include the expenditure to clear capital arrears in 2013, which are excluded from the structural balance. After 2014, the IMF staff projects convergence to a structural balance in line with Italy’s fiscal rule, which implies corrective measures in some years, as yet unidentified.
