Its privileged, strategic position in the Atlantic Ocean makes Gran Canaria a special place and, due to its proximity to the African continent, a natural location as a logistics platform between Europe, Africa and America. It is also a region within the European Union with a stable political and institutional framework which enjoys an exclusive Economic and Fiscal Regime, fully compatible with European regulations. This special regime offers economic incentives and tax advantages that greatly exceed those in other regions of the European Union.
Moreover, the island’s economy is fully developed, at the same level as the average of the other regions of the European Union, and the services sector, in which the tourist industry has considerable weight, is particularly important.
The island’s economic and tax incentives and the conditions of its surrounding make it an ideal place for the development of other sectors, including logistics, advanced services and technology, as well as existing opportunities in the existing tourism and leisure sectors.
Gran Canaria’s geostrategic and economic conditions are further strengthened by the provision of an excellent infrastructure, most notably in the areas of transport, telecoms, business enterprise zones and technology hubs.
