Why Murcia is an emerging investment hotspot in Spain

Murcia

Spain's emergence from the global financial crisis is continuing to pick up steam, and local governments throughout the country are actively seeking investors to boost the economy. In the southeastern city of Murcia, representatives of the regional government are reportedly meeting with major hotel chains, both domestic and foreign, to attract investment in the regional tourist industry.  

According to Murcia Today, Juan Hernandez, the head of the government department of economic development, tourism and employment, met with CEOs of two leading chains in Madrid this week, and said that more meetings were upcoming.

Hernandez said that a record number of visitors are coming to the Costa Calida, and that improvements in infrastructures (including the €45 million investment of European funds in the Mar Menor area) will contribute further to future growth.
