Here’s a stat for you – Spain’s investment in the UK is more than th e whole of the Latin America’s combined, making Spain one of the largest investors in the UK.
And despite its recent economic troubles, Spain is the fifth largest economy in the European Union (EU) and the fastest growing in the eurozone.
When it comes to exports, Spain is the UK’s 8th largest market and in 2011 exported UK goods and services were worth £15.28 billion.
There are 900 UK companies currently operating in Spain, with businesses like Tunstall and Primark increasing their investment, while Dealz-Poundland, Stella McCartney and Jo Malone are among new UK investors in Spain.
If you want to join the legion of ex-pats and invest in a Spanish business opportunity – or even if you have business interests out there already – you’ll need an easy and cost-effective way to keep in touch – which is where a conference call comes in.
And here’s how you can arrange one for up to 100 participants using nothing more than a mobile or landline telephone…

Where is Spain?

Whats’ the best time to call Spain from the UK?
Madrid sits just over 1,000 miles away from London and although there are regular flights that take around two-and-a-half hours to cover the distance, a conference call makes more sense than jumping a flight every time you need to talk shop.
If you’re going to keep in touch via conference call, bear in mind Spain is an hour ahead of the UK.
