Brussels urges Spain to watch current spending and limit higher energy aid


The European Commission urge Spain to limit the growth of current expenses, given the obligations it took on to temporarily support the households and businesses most vulnerable to rising energy prices and the people it took in from Ukraine, after the war launched by Russia in the aftermath of the invasion. “Spain must be ready to adjust its current expenditure to the evolution of the economic situation”, indicate the European authorities in the report on the state budget for 2023, which only arouses an approved scraping.

The Commission once again expresses its disagreement with the macroeconomic forecasts of the Spanish government, in terms of growth and inflation, which it considers too favorable and inconsistent with the development of the situation in the rest of the countries of the Union. And he also insists that aid to citizens to compensate them for the costs of rising energy prices should go exclusively to the most vulnerable sectors.
