Spain Exporter Guide 2010
Spain, one of the EU's fastest growing retail markets in recent years, is suffering the effects of the international financial crisis and the end of the boom in the real estate and construction sectors. Consumer confidence is falling sharply as negative economic figures are reflected in the retail sector downturn. Nevertheless, the dynamic Spanish market still offers opportunities for certain consumer-oriented food items, as well as long-term prospects for other products. This report provides guidance to U.S. companies interested in exporting high-value consumer-ready food products to Spain and includes an overview of the country's economic situation, market structure, and export requirements.
