Interest Rate in Portugal
Portugal - Interest RateGrowth crept up in Q4 2018 to conclude a solid year of economic growth, although more moderate than that of 2017. The pick-up was owing to the external sector’s less severe drag on growth compared to Q3. Despite slowing global growth and geopolitical uncertainty, FDI was likely robust in the year and continued to support the country’s export-oriented sectors. Going into 2019, prospects appear dimmer. In January, consumer confidence slid to a nearly two-year low, while the economic climate indicator also inched down amid growing concerns over the Eurozone’s broad-based slowdown. On the political front, the Socialist party is currently leading polls ahead of the 6 October general election. However, the effects of chronic underinvestment in public services, along with the recent resurgence of protests by public sector workers, raise uncertainties over the outcome of the vote.
