Spain: solid GDP growth on the back of domestic recovery

Rabobank expects the Spanish economy to grow around 2¼% in 2015. This growth is primarily driven by private consumption but public consumption and investment will also contribute positively. Net exports are expected to contribute negatively to GDP as import growth remains strong on the back of domestic demand.
