The effects of the crisis on Spanin's businesses' productivity and competitiveness remain

The size of Spain’s companies is an unnecessary drag on the economy

In the corporate world, size is also important. One of the areas still pending reform in Spain, and one of the economy’s biggest weaknesses, is the size of companies. According to studies published by groups like the Circulo de Empresarios (Circle of Entrepreneurs) or research institution Fedea, Spain’s GDP would grow 13-15% if the average size of its companies was closer to that of neighbouring countries like Germany or the UK.
