Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy assured that, despite the general economic downturn in the euro zone, the country will grow more and reach the deficit target for next year. During his speech, he expressed such a wish: “I wish our neighbors were doing better than Spain.”

Giving his speech at the forum with a clear economic orientation, organized by the newspaper “Financial Times”, the Prime Minister Rajoy acknowledged that “the economic situation remains difficult,” but was overcome “the worst”, and in 2014 will be the growth of the economy and employment, “for the first time in a long time”, after experiencing the most difficult and important crisis “over the past three generations.”
