PUBLISHED April 2022



While The Business Year has published research on the Spanish economy at large and carried out a more focused analysis on the local Barcelona economy, this is the first time we have shone such an intense spotlight on Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands. This publication features interviews with over 90 of the island’s top business figures from a diverse range of sectors, including sustainability and digitalization, tourism and hospitality, sports, ports and marinas, construction and architecture, real estate and design, and mobility, with a special focus on the “Made in Mallorca” brand.

With this 156-page publication, discover more about how one of the most popular tourism destinations in Europe is reinventing itself after COVID-19, and why international investment funds are betting on Mallorca.
