Spain Expects Faster Growth

Spain’s central bank has revised upward its 2017 growth forecast from 2.8% to 3.1% owing to strong consumer demand and exports, AP reported. In a report Tuesday, the bank also revised upward its expected growth figure for 2018 from 2.3% to 2.5%. Conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has made economic growth and job creation his main goals since taking office in 2011 in the middle of an economic crisis. Spain is now among the fastest-growing economies and biggest job creators in the EU, although its 19% unemployment rate is still the second-highest in the 28-country bloc, behind Greece.
