Facts About Portugal And Portugal's Economy
The Economy of Portugal is of a mixed nature and functions in support of a high income country.
The WEF's Global Competitiveness Report for 2014-2015 ranked Portugal 36th; Portugal's ranking had been falling since 2005 (with the exception of 2011) but recovered from the 51st position in 2013 to the 36th in 2014.
Most imports come from the European Union (EU) countries of Spain, Germany, France and the United Kingdom, while most exports also involve other EU member states. The Portuguese currency is the Euro (€) and the country has been a part of the Eurozone since its inception.

The Portuguese Economy has been steady expanding continuously since the third quarter of 2014, with a yearly GDP growth 1.5% registered in the second quarter of 2015.

The Government budget deficit has also been reduced from the 11.2% of GDP in 2010 to 4.8% in 2014. These rates mark an inversion from the negative trends caused by the impact of the Financial Crisis of 2008 in the Portuguese Economy, that made it to shrank for three consecutive years (2011, 2012 and 2013), accompanied by a high increase of the unemployment rate (that achieved a record of 17.7% in the early 2013). The crisis has caused a wide range of domestic problems that are specifically related to the levels of public deficit, as well as the excessive debt levels, in the economy, culminating in the confirmation from Portugal to a €78 billion financial bailout from the EU in April 2011, following similar decisions from Greece and Ireland. The new government that assumed office in June 2011 had to face tough choices in regard to its attempts to stimulate the economy while at same time seeking to maintain its public deficit around the EU average.
