Business tip 1. Upcoming proffessionals to Spain
04 February 2010 @ 13:02

The number of registered foreigners in Spain is of 5.6 million, of which 2.3 are EU citizens.
Migration has been strongly reduced: from 480,000 in 2008 to 80,000 foreigners last year, according to the Yearbook of Immigration in Spain, which has been submitted to the Ministry of Labor.

But Professor Josep Oliver, professor of Economics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona warns that this will pick up, although with less intensity. "The demographics of the country suggest that after the crisis, we will have a flood of immigrants, but with different characteristics: young skilled and medium-skilled women and similar age to help the aging population."

Along with that segment of Spanish-speaking foreigners working for the care of our elderly people there is also a different coming reality which will also create work posts:

I see as very likely that mostly Northern European foreign population will eventually occupy most of the stock of coastal-tourism housing which is unsold as of today. This population will be demanding bilingual speaking quality services that do not exist to this day.

Are you coming?

This is s very encouraging article. It really benefits no one to have all this housing stock empty on the Costas. I certainly hope these predictions will materialise.
