Over the past few weeks there have been contradicting messages about the Spanish economy but the PM is adamant that the country is on a fast track to full recovery and growth.

Palma.—Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy made a televised address yesterday in which he stated that his current priority is to “recover the standard of living for Spaniards that was lost during the crisis.”
During a press conference in La Moncloa prime ministerial palace, the PM offered his assessment of the past 12 months and set out his priorities for 2015, which will be the last year of his current legislature.
After seven years of crisis, he said yesterday, “in 2014 net employment has grown, which marks a before and after.” Rajoy went on to state that in order to guarantee that 2015 be “the year (that the economy) takes off,” stability is needed, in an apparent reference to emerging political alternatives in Spain, such as new party Podemos.

Rajoy added that this is the Christmas season “of recovery,” and that 2015 “would mark the definitive takeoff of the economy. Now is the time to overcome the effects of the crisis,” he said.
“A year ago I predicted that 2014 would be better, and that expectation has been exceeded.”
