Portugal was hit hard by the global crisis and unemployment hit record levels but the unemployment rate has been declining since early 2013. In July 2014, 14% of the labour force was unemployed.
Portugal’s economy appears to be turning the corner. We expect growth of 1.1% this year and 1.4% in 2015, broadly in line with government projections. Unemployment is starting to decline, exports are booming and the public debt is being gradually brought under control. To cement this improving scenario, it is important to maintain the reform agenda, and to continue to address the high levels of corporate debt and public debt.
