This is a column published in five days Wednesday April 21. You can view it online here or download it in pdf Can do business in Spain?
The answer seems obvious. Yes, in Spain can be made clear that business, but if you look a bit more about the issue, we will not.
Not so simple a manner as should be able to do.
At the time when the unemployment figure reached historic proportions, and once again the main concern of millions of Spanish families, promotion of business opportunities and entrepreneurial attitude should be the foundation upon which underpin recovery economic for it to be stable and sustainable.
Index Doing Business , World Bank subsidiary, measured in detail for years the degree of ease of doing business in 183 countries. In this report the data from Spain are nothing flattering or by the evolution of our country, not for his current position with respect to neighboring countries.
At the global level, Spain is ranked No. 62 in ease of doing business in 2010, having lost 11 positions on the previous edition (which already had a classification rather than discrete), far from the position we correspond, our country being a major world economies.
This means that World Bank analysts during 2010 is preferable to start a business in developed countries like USA, UK, or Japan. So far nothing noteworthy, but also other countries like Korea, South Africa, Cyprus, Tonga and Mongolia are ahead of our country in the classification of the facility to engage and do business.
This index measures the ease of comparison to begin to undertake to employ, the ease in dealing with administrative procedures, registering property, getting credit, paying taxes or rate protection and contract enforcement.
One of the main brakes on economic activity in Spain are the heavy red tape that entrepreneurs have to implement any initiative. In a scenario in which the administration has been trying to encourage innovative projects that arise and encourage the emergence of entrepreneurs who create jobs, it is absurd that after such public effort in fostering an entrepreneurial figure fall on deaf ears to the enormous bureaucratic obstacles that limit economic activity and business, and that weigh down many areas not only in generating domestic demand but also competition for the installation of foreign companies in our country that increasingly choose to emerging markets in Europe, including Ireland, Romania or Poland.
It is unacceptable that e n Spain formalities of starting a business will lead to an average of 10 administrative procedures and 47 days on average, while in OECD countries is on average 5 procedures and 13 days. We in the days of "you again tomorrow.
It is time to demand that expedite and facilitate all these processes, the government and the Autonomous Communities have a pending, and although every year announce measures to simplify administrative procedures to start a business we are still light years from countries more advanced, in fact, we are in the caboose behind almost all countries of our environment.
