EPP Group Meets the Spanish Government and Discusses Economic Recovery

EPP Group Bureau met in Palma de Mallorca to meets Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy and key ministers to discuss the present situation in the country and the prospects of economic recovery. Spain is at a crossroads and the new government of Mariano Rajoy, which emerged victorious from last November's general election, has implemented urgent and efficient reforms in order to spur the country back to economic growth. The 2008 financial and economic crisis hit the Spanish economy hard, weakened due to seven years of inconsistent policies of the previous socialist government.
