Natuzzi agrees to suspend plans to lay off Italian staff-lawmaker

ROME, July 5 (Reuters) - Furniture group Natuzzi has agreed to suspend plans to lay off 1,700 workers in southern Italy pending a further meeting with government officials in 10 days’ time, centre-left lawmaker Dario Ginefra said on Friday.

Company executives agreed to suspend the plans following a meeting with Industry Ministry Undersecretary Claudio De Vincenti on Friday. A new meeting with the government is due to be held on July. 15.
