Since becoming a member of the European Community in 1986, Portugal’s traditionally largely agricultural economy became increasingly diversified and orientated towards the service sector. It experienced solid growth in the 1990s. The 2008 financial crisis left Portugal with a budget deficit, however, in 2011 Portugal was successful in negotiating a loan which has successfully refueled its economy, improved growth prospects and strengthened its banking system.
