The Basque Country, briefly

Our hallmarks.
We are a Country with a great historical, cultural and economic vitality, the fruit of a strong collective feeling and a considerable capacity for business initiative. We have significant distinctive features of a cultural, economic, industrial and fiscal nature, and we enjoy a high degree of political autonomy (Autonomous Government, Provincial Councils) and fiscal autonomy (our own Treasury).




Geographical and demographic profile.
With a surface area of 7,234 km² and a population of over 2 million, the population density is close to 300 inhabitants per km². We form part of the Spanish State bordering on France to the north and the Cantabrian Sea.

Industrial and economic strength.
We had a per capita GDP index of 136 in 2009 (compared with the average index of 100 of the EU), which makes us the second country in the EU after Luxembourg in terms of purchasing power.
One of the reasons for this economic strength is our centenary industrial tradition that has enabled Basque industry to be competitive and have a high level of participation in external markets in general, and in the European in particular.
