Similarly, Goldman Sachs’ forecast is more optimistic this year International Monetary Fund (IMF)which provides for a 4.3% expansion in 2022Also of the European Commission, J 4.5% growth is expected this year. However, looking to 2023, the US Bank is more pessimistic about Spain, as the IMF forecasts an expansion of 1.2% and the EC of 1%.

Likewise, it maintains its forecast for another hike of half a percentage point in February but, given the prospect of strong demand, now expects two additional hikes of a quarter each at meetings in March and May.
