This is a very good time to be talking about these matters. As you know, yesterday, together with Minister Calviño, we launched our 2018 Economic Survey of Spain, which fundamentally highlights the strength of the Spanish economy and urges you to continue with your reform drive towards a model of inclusive growth that leaves no one behind.
The recovery of the Spanish economy has been more dynamic than most euro area economies, with a robust 3% GDP growth in the past three years. Although it is still extremely high, unemployment has fallen to 14.5% from its peak of 26% in 2013, and in the past year alone 478 000 jobs have been created.
In Madrid, the Secretary-General will present the 2018 OECD Economic Survey of Spain, alongside Ms. Nadia Calviño, Minister of Economy and Enterprise of Spain. He will also deliver remarks at an event signalling the Accession of Spain to the Global Deal, alongside Ms. Magdalena Valerio, given that the OECD houses the Global Deal’s Support Unit.
