Spain's indicators so far this year give mixed signals, Economy Minister says

·1-min read

MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish economic indicators so far this year have given mixed signals on how the country's economy is performing, Economy Minister Nadia Calvino said on Thursday.

"We're in the middle of a transition," she said. "We're at a moment of uncertainty and we always try to be prudent."

She stressed 204,000 workers exited from the state-supported furlough scheme since the peak of contagion in February.

The central bank on Tuesday said the Spanish economy will likely contract 0.4% in the first quarter due to the COVID-19 restrictions and lowered its growth figure for the full year.

"Indicators are mixed," Calvino said.
