      In this reform area we monitor the advances of the Spanish economy in removing unnecessary obstacles to competition and in reforming business regulations in general.

The timeline below keeps track in chronological order of the policy analysis, recommendations and reforms in Spain in the following four subareas:

  1. Competition enforcement
  2. Regulation of product and service markets
  3. Red tape and business environment regulation
  4. Professional services
