The European Stability Mechanism director, Klaus Regling, also said that "Portugal has made significant progress and this is clearly visible in the classifications from the rating agencies and the market development", with lower debt yields, but he added that there were still “vulnerabilities” so Portugal had to stay on its toes ".

 

The conclusions of the sixth post-programme mission to Portugal were one of the points on today’s finance minister meeting, which was marked by the farewell to the German minister Wolfgang Schäuble, who pointed to Portugal as “proof” of the success of the euro stabilisation policy and an illustration of a happy ending.
