Adds of business lobby chief

- The Italian government must manage potential retaliation if it wants to pull out of China's Belt and Road initiative (BRI), the head of Italy's Confindustria business lobby told reporters, saying the deal has produced advantages.

"The agreement as such did bring anything, there are countries that have signed the agreement and have increased trade," Carlo Bonomi said after a Confindustria assembly in Rome.
