Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Spain and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero has rolled out the red carpet for Qatar’s emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who promised to invest three billion Euros in the Spanish savings bank sector. He was received with the greatest honors that included a banquet at the royal palace with not only the Spanish royal family and government, but also the personalities of the directors of the two football teams Real Madrid and Barcelona as well as acting couple Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith.


During the official meeting yesterday between the Qatari emir, and Spanish Prime Minister, did they signed four important treaties on the establishment of a Spanish-Qatar’s collaboration, these contracts is about the Spanish sporting elites and the Qatar National Olympic Committee and several bilateral issues on energy, infrastructure, transport and safety .


And it strongly suggests that the Spanish government is completely obsessed with getting their hands on more oil money, it’s not just cooperation with Qatar, and it is also with Norway. Agreement with Qatar is in fact in line with Zapatero’s trip to Oslo last September, where he was during an discussion with Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who promised imminent investment by the Norwegian pension fund, which is among the worlds largest.


 Qatar, according to the IMF the world’s richest countries, particularly because of its huge gas and oil reserves. Qatar is in the same line as the Emirates, a country with a rapid development and major infrastructure projects. The country’s presidents and prime ministers is the Emir, and it is he who appoints the government. It has no form of political institution or political party. Zapatero has in recent months has focused on foreign investment in Spain, which have included trips to not only Qatar, but also Dubai, Singapore and China in particular.

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

The tourism sector is recovering faster than expected on the Costa del Sol, helped in particular by positive numbers over the Easter weekend. Tourism can invite Spain to an unexpected impetus to the finance and unemployment crisis in Spain. Figures from the leading industry association “Exceltur” show that growth on the Costa del Sol in the current situation amounts to 2.4 percent, which is three times stronger than the Spanish national average. The reason is not least the influx of tourists who booked on scheduled flights to include Tunisia, Egypt and other Arab countries. In addition, increasing the influx of traditionally important markets such as Germany and the Nordic countries where the financial crisis is over, although the UK market is still weak, so start the economy getting better even then and there will also enhance tourism market in Spain. The increase also means that unemployment in the tourism sector is about 14 percent, compared with the national average of 20 percent. Tourism is a very important part in Spain, accounting for ten percent of the Spanish gross domestic product. Domestic tourism is recovering slowly, but even so, the figures for the Easter weekend was better than expected.

Meanwhile, the number who moved back from abroad only 7.875. The figures from the statistics institute INE do not specify the reasons for the rise in emigration. Many highly educated, however, choose to seek their fortune abroad because of the record high unemployment in Spain.


Every fifth person on the Costa del Sol is a foreigner


Every fifth person registered for census purposes in Malaga province is a foreigner. The proportion of foreigners on the Costa del Sol continues to rise. Of the 14.588 people who registered last year was just over 60 percent foreigners. They were totally at year-end 321.582 people, of a total of 1.624.145 inhabitants in Malaga province.

Spain wants to “encourage” unemployed immigrants to return home


Spanish Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba said that the changes in the regulation of immigration will “encourage” immigrants in Spain who have lost their jobs to return to their home countries. “It is true that many people are reluctant to return because they have worked for many years in Spain and did not want to lose everything. It is unfair to the people who have worked in Spain and contributed to economic growth, then have to move. Therefore, it introduced a measure that respects their time in Spain if they come back so they are easier to obtain permanent residence or citizenship, “said Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba.


Another issue that Rubalcaba highlighted is the legal protection for victims of domestic violence. Women should not have to be afraid to go to the police station and report abuse and then risk being expelled. Rubalcaba said that the revised regulation of immigration is an important law which is based on a broad consensus. Council of Ministers has approved the regulation of immigration, the Regulations on Extranjería.
