Corporate Author:
International Monetary Fund
Dmitry Gershenson, Albert Jeager, Subir Lall

In 2011, following years of large-scale external imbalances financed by debt, Portugal's economy reached a crisis point. To restore economic growth and credibility with international lenders, the country embarked on a difficult path of fiscal adjustment and structural reforms. By many metrics, Portugal's 2011-14 macroeconomic stabilization program has been a success, but going forward Portugal would benefit from policies to reduce vulnerabilities, absorb labor slack, and generate sustainable growth.

The government lost access to market financing at manageable interest rates, and Ireland entered into a three-year programme of financial assistance from the European Union (EU) and IMF.
