Portugal has become the
latest bailed-out eurozone
country to receive a clean
bill of health from the
after its budget deficit fell
to 2% of GDP last year.
This brings it well below the EU limit of 3% and allows it to exit the Commission's excessive debt procedure.After its 2011 bailout, Portugal saw austerity policies under a centre-right government until elections in 2015. Since then, a Socialist-led coalition has reversed those austerity measures.EU economy commissioner Pierre Moscovici said the outcome was "extremely good news" for Portugal.The Portuguese finance ministry hailed the Commission's decision, calling it a "turning point".Under EU rules, member states are not supposed to run annual deficits greater than 3% of their total economic output.Portugal now complies with those rules, but some other member states are less fortunate.
