Opportunities in Spain’s Economy
Spain has the thirteenth-largest economy in the world, and is a market leader in the Eurozone. Spain’s population is made up primarily of native Spaniards. One tenth of the population comprises immigrants from Latin America, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. A sizeable portion of foreign residents also come from other Central and Western European countries.
The capital, Madrid, and Barcelona are the only two cities with populations exceeding one million. Over fifteen million people live in these major cities – almost one third of the nation’s population.
Most people speak at least one of the Romance languages, but Castilian Spanish is the only one that is recognized country-wide.
