Spanish economy expanding again
26 Nov 2015 14:02
Spain's economy grew for the ninth consecutive quarter, official data showed today just weeks ahead of general elections dominated by economic issues in a country slowly emerging from a devastating financial crisis.
Growth slowed slightly in the third quarter of 2015 to 0.8% compared with 1% in the previous three months, according to the country's National Statistics Institute.
The country is faring better than its European neighbours, though its growth remains slower than that of Romania, Slovakia or Poland, it added.
Spain's economic recovery has been fuelled mainly by domestic demand, particularly by a rise in household spending in a country where unemployment nevertheless remains sky high - more than 21% in the third quarter.
