Eurozone closed 2021 with 5% inflation

Even though inflation in Portugal is running at a lower level, the eurozone as a whole looks like it closed 2021 with a 5% rate of inflation. Jornal Económico explains this will represent a steady increase over the last six months that shows no signs of waning due to pressure caused by rising energy prices. ECO online carries a warning today that national energy companies are already being pushed towards bankruptcy.
