Spain has many attractive qualities for foreign investment: a large market of over 46 million people, a Western democracy with a solid middle-class, and approximately 60 million tourists each year. It is also part of a much larger market, the EU, with the capacity for a commercial platform with at least two other main markets, namely Latin America and North Africa. Spain is very well-run. It has an excellent quality of life and attracts talent from around the world, and it has a highly developed financial system and excellent transport infrastructure"
