Spain has emerged from recession in the third quarter, with estimated economic growth of 0.1 to 0.2 percent, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in a newspaper interview Tuesday.
He also forecast growth of between 0.5 and 1.0 percent in 2014, stronger than the government's previous estimate, in an interview published in the Wall Street Journal.
"Spain is out of recession but not out of the crisis," the newspaper quoted him as saying. "The task now is to achieve a vigorous recovery that allows us to create jobs."
