Spain’s economic recovery is gathering speed according to the International Monetary Fund, but the body has called for an overhaul of employment contracts, a rise in VAT and the introduction of healthcare co-payments.

They warned that further necessary reforms might not happen because Mariano Rajoy’s PP government is fighting to get re-elected this autumn.
