The Navarrese economy is on the move “towards recovery“Despite the shadows that this is not homogeneous, the Minister of Economy and Finance, Elma Saiz, has warned, an argument corroborated by the Minister of Economic and Business Development, Mikel Irujo, for whom” we are in the first car, but not at the forefront “.
This has been stated in the presentation of the Laboral Kutxa report on the Navarre economy exposed this Friday in Pamplona / Iruña, where it is considered, although they are revisable data depending on the evolution, that Navarra will mark a GDP growth 6.7% (6.5% in Spain) in 2022 and 6.4% in the current year.
Employment growth is also expected in Navarra of 4.2% this year and 4.8% next, while the prices will rise 2.3% in 2021 and 1.5% in 2022, has transferred the director of the Department of Studies of Caja Laboral-Laboral Kutxa, Joseba Madariaga, who has made an analysis of the evolution of the Navarrese economy in recent months, of the state and international context, and the prospects that derive from it.
In this field, it has been warned of the problem that the decrease in the supply of labor can pose with the brake on immigration and the aging of the global population, which suppose “a negative offer shock“.

With this scenario, the Minister of Economy and Finance, Elma Saiz has recognized that “the data invite us to think that the recovery is not only a wish but a reality”, although she has also warned that “it is not a homogeneous recovery nor exempt from certain risks “.
His partner in the Government and Minister of Economic and Business Development, Mikel Irujo, has also positioned himself in a moderate optimism, so that “we can say that” we are in the first car, in the locomotive, but not in the vanguard “, and has advanced that the next presentation of a shock plan related to helping companies to face the energy crisis is on this path, in which there is an ecosystem in Navarra of innovation centers and a strong business fabric that “allows us as a region to be present in all those challenges” that looming.
