The stability of Italy’s government remains a source of risk for the euro zone, rating agency Fitch said on Thursday.
“Our biggest concern in Italy is that we might not get a stable government,” Fitch analyst Ed Parker said at a conference hosted by the firm.
“Also, we can’t completely discount the bigger downside risk of a eurosceptic party being part of a coalition…. while populism has receded in Europe this year, Italy is a battle that remains to be fought,” Parker said.
