Portugal is an increasingly diversified and service-based economy. Its GDP growth accelerated in recent years, reaching 2.5% growth in 2017 and totalling €179.2 billion. This growth is stemming from increased domestic demand and investment in exports, which is said to have doubled in 2017. The primary industry sectors are services (around 75% of GDP), industrial (22% of GDP), and agricultural (2.4% of GDP).1 Services, in particular tourism, play an increasingly important role in the country’s economy.
