MILAN (Reuters) - Italy will protect strategic infrastructures such as telecoms and avoid transferring key know-how as part of an infrastructure accord it intends to sign with China, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte was quoted as saying.
In an interview with Corriere della Sera daily, Conte said Italy was studying mechanisms to monitor commercial accords that would be signed under the "Belt and Road" memorandum agreement with China as well as other measures to protect "our strategic activities and national interests."
