- Nadia Calviño met Monday in London with funds and investment banks
- The growing confidence of international markets has allowed better financing conditions for Spain, which will grow in 2019 above the European average
The Minister of Economy and Business, Nadia Calviño, met Monday in London with funds and investment banks to inform them of the economic situation and prospects of Spain. The meetings, common in the minister's agenda, have served to confirm the stability of the Spanish economy and to confirm the confidence that awakens among international investors.
This growing confidence of international markets in our country is facilitating better financing conditions, with the payment of lower interest. The cost of outstanding debt in 2018 marked a record low. Likewise, the syndicated issue made in January by the Treasury had the highest demand in the history of the euro.
Spain will grow in 2019 above the average of European countries, as evidenced by the set of forecasts, with an even greater growth differential after the latest updates from organizations such as the European Commission and the International Monetary Fund.
The minister reiterated Spain's commitment to the reduction of public debt and fiscal discipline, one of the pillars of the Government's economic policy along with social cohesion and the reforms articulated around the Change Agenda.
