6/2/2017 – The Portuguese economy is gradually recovering from a deep recession thanks to a broad structural reform agenda that has led to rising economic growth, falling unemployment and remarkable progress in export performance. Maintaining momentum for further reforms is crucial to address remaining challenges and bringing about stronger and more inclusive growth, according to a new report from the OECD.
The latest OECD Economic Survey of Portugal also points out the need to bring down high levels of public and private sector indebtedness and address non-performing loans in the banking system, which are hampering investment and holding back growth and productivity.
