Hello,
Please, could you help me to know the difference between economic and economical?

I guess Economical is the answere because in this case there needed adjective to modify situation of the country.

Both words can be used as adjectives.

The difference between economic and economical:

Economic tends to be used more broadly. It’s usually related to money, but it doesn’t have to be.

Economical is more commonly used more like “efficient”. It refers to doing things the cheaper or easier way.

The difference between the two words has more to do with common usage rather than a fixed dictionary definition.

The presentation focused on the gross national product and the impact that this has on the economic situation of the country.

*A small car is more economical to drive than a large car.

The first sentence uses the word more broadly. The second sentence uses the word more narrowly to mean cheaper and more energy efficient.
