Spain's powerful world empire of the 16th and 17th centuries ultimately yielded command of the seas to England. Subsequent failure to embrace the mercantile and industrial revolutions caused the country to fall behind Britain, France, and Germany in economic and political power. Spain remained neutral in World War I and II but suffered through a devastating civil war (1936-39). A peaceful transition to democracy following the death of dictator Francisco FRANCO in 1975, and rapid economic modernization (Spain joined the EU in 1986) gave Spain a dynamic and rapidly growing economy and made it a global champion of freedom and human rights. More recently Spain has emerged from a severe economic recession that began in mid-2008, posting three straight years of GDP growth above the EU average. Unemployment has fallen, but remains high especially among youth. Spain is the Eurozone’s fourth largest economy.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

After expanding at over 3% in the past three years, the economy is projected to grow at a robust, but more moderate, pace in 2018 and 2019. Favourable financial conditions and strong job creation will continue to support private domestic demand. Net exports will also contribute positively to GDP growth. Inflation will remain moderate as unemployment remains high.

Public debt is gradually declining, but remains high. As the recovery continues, public debt is projected to fall in relation to GDP, but the government will have to ensure further significant declines in the years ahead, by further improving its fiscal position and introducing additional reforms to strengthen long-term growth. The implementation of the pension reform will be key to ensure long-term fiscal sustainability. More effective labour market policies and re-skilling are needed to further reduce unemployment and inequalities, and make growth more inclusive.
