Now Is the Perfect Time to Invest in the Spanish Market

Economic growth in Spain has exceeded 3% p.a. for each of the last four years. Confidence is improving, foreign direct investment is rising and business has never been more supported. Add to that large urban populations, global cities (such as Madrid and Barcelona) and one of Europe’s highest qualities of life, and it’s clear why Spain has become a top destination for skilled workers and a great place to invest. 

Late 2020, Wall Street English Spain was acquired by Natanael Wright, owner of Wall Street English France. With 4 centers in early 2021 and 20 more planned by 2025, the business is now set for further growth in the country.
