(Bloomberg) — The Italian economy likely expanded 6.5% in 2021, more than initially forecast, according to a representative of Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s government.

The economy probably grew 0.6% in the fourth quarter from the previous three months, Renato Brunetta, public administration minister, wrote in a statement.

Statistics agency Istat will release the official data on Monday, which is expected to confirm a significant rebound after an 8.9% contraction in 2020.

The reforms process started by Draghi’s administration, which includes changes to the justice, tax and public-administration system, is helping fuel growth, and the economy should expand more than 4% this year despite the impact of the energy crisis and geopolitical tensions, Brunetta said.

The Bank of Italy lowered its growth forecast for 2022 to 3.8% from 4% previously because of an expected impact from the spread of Covid-19 cases linked to the Omicron variant.
