The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Spain, to be published on Monday 8 September 2014, assesses the country’s return to moderate growth and more sustainable public finances after the protracted recession. The Survey discusses strategies to reinforce economic recovery, including reforms to the business environment and labour market institutions that are needed to further enhance growth and reduce unemployment.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría will present the Survey during a news conference on 8 September in Madrid with Spain’s Minister of Economy and Competitiveness Luis de Guindos. The news conference begins at 12:30 CET (10:30 GMT) at the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Paseo de la Castellana 162, 28046 Madrid).
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 12:30 CET for immediate release.
An Overview with the main conclusions will be freely accessible in pdf format on the OECD’s web site at: http://www.oecd.org/eco/surveys/economic-survey-spain.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
