Latest publications

Output grew 18.2% YoY in March, higher than expected by the market consensus (15.8%). This result hides a low year-on-year comparison base, since isolation measures were introduced in March 2020 and they were much tighter than the current ones.
The consumption acceleration continued during April across all countries and sectors, reaching its highest peak with respect to last year lockdowns.
In April, total card consumption grew 213% YoY, in real terms. This is explained by a low comparison base due to the fact that the same month last year spending was affected by confinement measures and mobility restrictions.
