MADRID, July 7 (Reuters) - Spain's government expects the Spanish economy to continue growing next year despite the impact of rising inflation and the war in Ukraine, Finance Minister Nadia Calvino said in a radio interview on Thursday.

She said the government expects the economy to grow over 4% in the second half of 2022. The government in April lowered the official GDP growth forecast for 2022 from an estimated 7% to 4.3%.
