Andalucía Leads The Way Out Of The Crisis As Business Creation Rises By 14%.
Andalucía is leading Spain in the creation of new businesses as February saw an increase of 14% in registrations across the region.
This has been put down to the framework of trust generated by the Junta de Andalucía. The President, Juanma Moreno, has fostered such a stable environment for companies to settle in the community that the number of commercial companies incorporated in Andalucía in February was 1,458, representing an increase of 14.2% compared to the same period last year. These figures were confirmed by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and published on Wednesday, April 14.
Using this index, Andalucía now ranks as the fifth community in the creation of mercantile companies, behind Cantabria (51.8%), Navarra (32.8), Murcia (32.6%) and Asturias (22.8). In addition, it shows a return to positive rates after falling by 9.3% in January and the largest increase since August 2020 when it grew by 22.2%.
The number of companies that ceased to trade in the year as a whole were 343, 13.2% less, Andalucía was the second community with the most companies applying for bankruptcy in the year as a whole, behind Murcia, which had 748.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
