Portugal eases out of economic crisis

A three-year bailout ends in the country as signs of economic revival begin to surface.

    A three-year financial bailout is formally over in Portugal, one of the countries worst hit by the eurozone crisis.

    Deep spending cuts and unemployment have made life difficult in the country, but there are new signs of economic revival.

    The crisis has changed various aspects of Portuguese society as well as the economy.

    Many young people have emigrated and those who stayed are choosing to have fewer children.
