Default Main Industries in Costa Del Sol

Hi, I'm interested to know what the main industries are on the Costa Del Sol, and which multi-nationals have their offices there.

Thanks a lot

The costa del sol is a big place. Malaga has a large IT parque, not sure who's on there. San Miguel, the beer company has a large presence, so has Coca Cola, but I would say its largest industry would be tourism and related. But Like I say, its a large region

Interesting question - I have liked it (new usage of the verb like for linguists). However you can do the work...
Here is a list of the top companies in Spain. Now you can go through it and tell is where they are, ok??
- Informacion de las 100 Primeras Empresas de Espaa - CIF - Listados y Bases de Datos - Actualidad Economica - Iberinform - Grupo Credito y Caucion

Hmmm. How is this list compiled? Inditex (Zara, Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho...) is number 30 something. I thought Inditex was one of the biggest companies worldwide

Its a dodgy one at the mo as tourism due to the recession has declined and that has taken with it the construction industry and several others, but who knows, a bit of new blood maybe???

I like the positive attitude We're under no illusions - my husband is in L&D/management training - hopefully they'll need some!

Well positive I may sound, but what you have to remember about Spain is that its "been there and done it"! 10 years ago, the tourism industry and Spain was buzzing, there was work and prosperity, new things were happening and it was growing. Then it hit a wall, everything had been done! Suddenly all the things Spain had were starting to lose appeal. The tourist industry is now awash with people trying to resurrect it and trying to kick start it. Its having a limited effect but I suspect thats mainly due to the world wide recession and Spain is still seen as a cheap holiday resort.

So, yes maybe it needs new blood, but theres still alot of the "old" blood who are here and have been for years, trying to survive and kick start things, but the recession, the failing construction industry and the staleness of Spain as a holiday resort arent helping. I doubt if theres anything new that can be done, without serious financial investment, but who knows????

Does your husband speak Spanish, cos that would be pretty pivotal I would have though if he wants to "get stuck in"????
