Spain’s Acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy expressed satisfaction regarding the report by the International Monetary Fund showing improved economic forecasts for Spain and underlined the importance of maintaining the policies put in place for continued growth and job creation.
Rajoy said he believes that the figures from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are “very positive and very important for the Spanish economy”. He stressed that “it is the only country in the world to have an improved forecast”, 3.2% growth in 2015 and 2.7% in 2016.
Rajoy said this is the result of the effort made by the people of Spain in recent years and shows that “the policies put in place were the right ones”.
In Rajoy’s opinion, “if we do things well, Spain can keep on growing at a good pace over the next four years and continue creating jobs, which is the great national objective”. This requires forming a government that can provide “stability, security and certainty, and having a large majority that will enable it to govern.”
To achieve this, “let us reach an agreement and build together” because, if not, “we are going to create a problem for the people of Spain, who have no reason to accept that all the effort they made in recent years is wiped out at a single stroke,” said Rajoy.
