This report by the European Commission presents the findings of the eleventh post-programme surveillance mission to Portugal and identifies remaining challenges for the Portuguese economy.
This report presents the findings of the eleventh post-programme surveillance (PPS) mission of Commission staff, in liaison with ECB staff, which took place in Lisbon during 11-13 February 2020.
Since the conclusion of the tenth post-programme surveillance mission in June 2019, Portugal’s economic growth had moderated but remained well above the euro area average. Employment and unemployment rates were already close to their best historical levels although job creation had slowed down. Risks related to the external environment continue to challenge Portugal’s export performance.
