The Bank of Spain has estimated the amount of user money corresponding to the NextGenerationEU European funds that will reach the end in Spain during the years 2023 and 2024 at 35,000 million euros, although these are figures involved “in enormous uncertainty.”

Gavilán explained that taking into account the information on the website launched by the Government of Spain – which includes all the calls -, in 2023 that amount would be around 15,000 million and in 2024 it would be “closer to 20,000 million euros “. “These amounts translate into an additional contribution to GDP of one percentage point in 2023 and between 1.3 and 1.4 percentage points in 2024.
The Commission points to more modest figures
Gavilán has insisted that these are estimates, since it must be taken into account that the calls appear on the website, but it is not known exactly when they are resolved or how long it takes for the money to reach the final beneficiary. The official figures from the European Commission, measured in terms of national accounts, point to more modest figures, amounting to 2.7 billion in 2021 and 5.7 billion in 2022.
