Bankinter research team analysis:

Final data for 4Q2022 confirm positive year-end dynamics, as do the indicators for the first months of 2023 (Manufacturing and Services PMIs in the expansion zone). The medium-term outlook depends to a large extent on inflation being contained. Persistent inflationary pressures, which continue to be evident in the evolution of core inflation, will lead to a moderation of growth in 2023 vs. 5.5% year-on-year in 2022.
