Spain has escaped the deficit fine. In a surprising move at the last minute and after more than three hours of a tense meeting the European Commission has decided to cancel the fines for Spain and Portugal despite their continuous incompliance with the deficit objectives. Spanish diplomats supported by France and Italy have been active over recent days.
If Spain had not dodged the bullet the fine would have been 0.2% of GDP or some 2.2 billion €.
