Earlier this week, Prime Minister Sánchez stated that economic recovery has already started, that it will be at a faster pace in 2021 and accelerate further in 2022. By 2023, there will be “better, more competitive and more productive growth”. Well, let’s hope so, and let’s hope that the prime minister has good reason for saying all this (one reason of course being the EU reconstruction fund). Sánchez is far from alone in predicting a future which is almost impossible to predict. Forecasts of general economic recovery and of the specific recovery of tourism have come thick and fast, and they tend to all have different timeframes.
