“We are convinced that democracy in Italy can strengthen and become more robust with a presidential reform”. The prime minister said, Giorgia Meloni, speaking at Summit for Democracy 2023 hosted by the United States. This, you explained, "can represent a strong measure in favor of the economy", protects jobs and allows all citizens to participate.

Democracy and economic growth "are intertwined, because democracy has an impact on growth, and economic growth can have an impact on democratization processes", added the Prime Minister. "Only a democratic system can guarantee sustainable and lasting growth, ensure better conditions in terms of justice, legality, functioning of the market", he continued. "Having reactive and effective institutions makes it possible to be more reliable at the international level and to set long-term goals, and it is one of the priorities set by my government", added Meloni.

Support nations that do not have the same economic development as us

Solidarity is a fundamental democratic value, and it serves to demonstrate that the West is not against the rest of the world: Italy will continue to carry this value forward during the G7 presidency in 2024, Meloni said again, adding that it is necessary “supporting nations that do not yet have the same level of economic development as we do”. “I am convinced that with democracy they will be able to achieve better results, respecting our principles and our values. It takes time to achieve these goals but I think it's worth it and we can do it together,” Meloni said. (

The Mattei plan for Africa

Meloni returned to the importance of the Mattei plan for Africa. "Democracy can work at the service of economic growth and, in this direction, the government has a Mattei Plan for Africa, a model of cooperation to create supply chains and help African populations make better use of their resources", he she said. “The more intense the growth and the more adequate the social and economic development achieved, the more the populations will choose democracy”.
