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.
