A flavour of major economic opportunities and risks highlighted in the PhaseZero Spain report:
- The Spanish government is planning to build the largest casino and entertainment complex in Europe. The Gran
Scala project proposes building casino-hotels, theme parks and a racecourse in countryside near the village of Ontinena. The project would see more than 30 casino hotels, a convention centre, theme parks, golf courses, a racecourse and a dog track.
- The Spanish government plans to launch transportation projects valued at $22.7 billion over the course of 2010 and 2011, through its Special Infrastructure Plan (PEI). If successful, by the end of 2010, Spain will overtake Germany as the European country with the biggest road network and surge ahead of France to become the continent's leader in high-speed passenger rail.
- Spain sold $7.1 billion of treasury bills, the maximum set for the auction, as higher demand drove down borrowing costs. Spain sold $5.6 billion Euros of 12-month bills today at an average yield of 1.836 percent, compared with 2.221 percent on 20 July 2010.
- The Spanish medical market is valued at $4.8 billion in 2010. The Spanish medical market ranks fifth in the EU-27 and eighth in the world. Nevertheless, medical spending per capita is on the low side for an EU-27 country. Over 80.0 percent of medical production is exported and, so, imports represent the majority of the market. Net medical production was valued at $1.5 billion of which exports amounted to $1.3 billion in 2008.
