The economic climate indicator in Portugal in January remained stable and the indicator of economic activity in December decreased, according to figures issued this week by the National Statistics Institute (INE).

The indicator of economic activity decreased to 2.9 points in December, down from 3.0 points in November.
“The quantitative indicator of private consumption declined in December, reflecting a less positive contribution of both components: current consumption and durable consumption,” it said.
Gross Fixed Capital Formation, or investment, slowed in December, “extending the downward trend started in June,” it added.
