    Move to Spain, you will be welcomed! Spanish government wants approx. 250,000 legal immigrants per year

    Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez presented “Project Spain 2050”, a 676-page study entitled “Foundations and Proposals for a Long-Term National Strategy”.

    The document, prepared by 100 university researchers who, Sánchez stressed, did not charge a cent, sets out 50 major goals for the next 30 years. Among them, it calls for an increase in legal immigration of at least 191,000 people per year on average by 2050. “In order to limit downsizing, our country must receive and integrate hundreds of thousands of immigrants from here, achieving at least a migration balance (the difference between those immigrating and those emigrating) of more than 191,000 people per year “.

    “If managed well, the arrival of this foreign population in Spain would have an extremely positive impact. Empirical data show that the increase in immigration will not lead to an increase in unemployment, while it will benefit the economy”, the document justifies the government’s foresight.

    Why does Spain need such a remarkable increase in immigration? Because over the next three decades, the life expectancy of the Spanish population will continue to increase (this could happen in more than three years), “leading to a strong ageing of our demographic pyramid”. “By 2050, one in three Spaniards will be 65 or older, and for every person in that age group, there are only 1.7 people of working age (today there are 3.4).”
