to italy now the country's economy is apparently in worse shape than its government has suggested for some time rome has forecast around one percent growth for twenty nineteen and it also said rising tax revenues from that growth would help limit any new dates to just over a moderate two percent of annual g.d.p. and those projections have changed now the latest forecast is for just zero point two percent growth and twenty nineteen and to make up for bad poor performance italy will have to take on new day it to the tune of two point four percent of g.d.p. now those new figures are weighing on investor confidence with lower growth and rising debt italy will have to pay higher interest rates when it issues government bonds for the last year its ten year bonds have yield. around three percent interest if rome is forced to pay investors more that'll put even more pressure on state finances and let's talk a little bit about that let's bring in

a seaman gupta who's standing by for us in rome sima good to see you know there's one piece of good news and that is standard and poor's said another downgrade is likely but is that enough for rome to be able to turn things around well as you mentioned mean it's he's the economy is not in the best of places the economy stumbled at the end of twenty eighteen and then of course the massive debt is you also mentioned but we have the figure of one hundred thirty two percent of the g.d.p. which is essentially the second highest in europe and so all these figures put in place but we had the finance minister giovanni tria speaking just earlier this month seeing that he believes that italy is probably out of recession and that because of encouraging start to the year perhaps it's a little bit more optimistic for the second half so perhaps that might have had some to play in terms of the ratings agencies and how they did not downgrade its

spending something which brussels is not going to be happy about but that it did i think brussels a kid's waiting to see what will be the outcome of the european elections later this month and whether they will place any additional sanctions all on it's really for the book though it's pretty much the state says as they wait to see what happens when you can elections or i see my group though they're from rome thank you so much. spain on the other hand has emerged from the global financial crisis with solid growth but while sunday's election gave a lift to the country's political left madrid has yet to solve the problem of high youth unemployment twenty four percent of young people out of work and if they get a job their contract is likely to be limited sometimes to just a few hours a day. rafael are up a is a nurse heading home after his shift and he has work tomorrow not to be taken for granted you will get they might have this contract for fifteen days before that i
