Economic situation?  Next year will be 'very difficult' for Portugal

BUTntónio Horta Osório believes that the Portuguese should be financially prepared not to face a “surprise shock” next year, warning that if there is economic growth in 2023, it will be lower than in recent years. In addition, he admits that he does not believe in big profits for banks.

In an interview with CNN Portugalmanager reported that “growth [em 2023]if there is, [será] much lower than the previous ones” and, consequently, “the more prepared the Portuguese are, the more they can defend themselves so that there is no shock from surprise“.

According to Horta Osorio, Next year will be ‘very difficult’ for Portugalwhich is a “small open economy” but has “some leeway to adjust to international implications”.

However, “this latitude is limited and there is no doubt that, unfortunately, the deteriorating food prices, the energy crisis, greatly exacerbated by the war in Ukraine led to inflation that is generalizing and should not be generalized – it is a hidden and unfair tax on society“.

The manager believes that the idea that “banks have a lot of money” is hatched, with which he disagrees: “It is enough to see that listed banks in Portugal, Spain and France are valued below their book value, which is mainly due to the fact that the banks’ return on capital, which is very high, is below the cost of capital.”

However, he explains that banks have a lot of liquidity given that it is important from a security point of view. “I don’t think the banks are making big profits because if you look at the return on equity, it’s way below 10%.“, and the minimum return required for the bank’s equity is between 10% and 12%.

The first Dacia hybrid.  "The cheapest hybrid family on the market"
