The Catalan economy grew at a rate of 2.3% in 2018, and will maintain a similar dynamism in 2019 and 2020, with GDP increases of 2.2% and 2.0%. This will allow the creation of 126.000 jobs, reduce the unemployment rate to 9.8% by the end of 2 020 and recover the positive growth differential compared to Spain
