Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Tuesday the government was proud of its expansionary 2019 budget and would seek to explain its strategy to the European Commission in a dialogue “without prejudice.”

“We are convinced that austerity is a path that can no longer be followed,” Conte told parliament ahead of an EU summit where his peers are expected to ask him about the budget.

Conte said the budget was founded on the need to boost investments, which had been lacking in Italy in recent years, and added that Italy’s membership of the EU was “unrenounceable.”
