This is an increase of 7.9% (60 euros), "the largest annual increase in the minimum wage ever", stated António Costa at the signing of the revised income agreement with social partners.

The "Reinforcement of the Medium-Term Agreement to Improve Income, Wages and Competitiveness" has been signed by the Government and social partners, with the exception of the Portuguese Business Confederation (CIP) and CGTP.

António Costa highlighted that the review of the income agreement was "very dedicated work, with little marketing", which allows wages to be increased and companies' competitiveness to improve.
