The primary sector remains weak due to climatic conditions: drought limits the development of agriculture. Light industry is doing well with exports of textile products.

It is mainly the tertiary sector which boosts the economy, although tourism still requires a lot of investment to become fully competitive. In recent years, the financial sector has been booming, with offshore services.

The IMF and the European Stability Mechanism released 11 billion euros, the banking sector was restructured, and the government signed an agreement providing for the freeze on civil servants' salaries, pensions, privatizations and a tax increase on corporations.
But despite this help, unemployment continued to rise until 2014, before falling again; in 2019, it turns around 7%.

Growth has become positive again; it was around 4% in 2017.
