“Firstly, apart from the obvious, which is the climate, there is the quality and rhythm of life, our open and hospitable character, distances are short, and we are relatively close to Europe. What’s more, we have one of the lowest costs of living in the EU and we even have fiscal instruments that are favorable to setting up a business,” says the regional tourism chief in El País article Not just a tourist destination: Why Spain’s Canary Islands are hoping to attract 30,000 remote workers.
