Portugal -Bank of Portugal forecasts private sector wage and employment growth -December 12, 2013

The Bank of Portugal has released its winter economic outlook, forecasting a growth of both employment and wages in the private sector. The bank expects the economy to pick up due to increased foreign demand. The government has welcomed the report as positive, whereas opposition parties have reacted sceptically. The bank warns that the private sector employment growth will not offset the public sector decline.
