The CEO of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, has assured that the Spanish economy is in slowdown, so it does not rule out a growth of less than 2% in 2019.
In statements to the media after participating this Thursday in a breakfast organized by the New Economy Forum, the leader of businessmen has made it clear that the moderation of economic growth in Spain goes hand in hand with global behavior.
"Is there a slowdown? Yes. Is there a crisis? Not yet," Garamendi said, to add that everything will depend "on the work we do, how we do it and the responsibility we have."
For this reason, he has asked for "optimism", because "it is essential to be proud of our country and sell it worthwhile", as well as to address "great State pacts and make the necessary reforms" and all "without partisan effects election campaign. "
In this regard, he has considered that an increase in pensions under the CPI for 2020 should come out of the agreement between parliamentary groups and at the social dialogue table, with employers and unions, so, once the elections are held , "if you want there is a lot of time to talk about it."
