ROME (Reuters) – Italy’s Economy Minister Roberto Gualtieri on Monday said Fiat Chrysler [FCHA.MI] has to strengthen investments in Italy and avoid delocalizing its factories outside the national borders to apply for a state backed loan.

“We have asked for additional commitments to the already stringent commitments (set for such loans): all the planned investments must be confirmed and indeed strengthened… we have said no to delocalizations,” Gualtieri told a TV interview.
