Gran Canaria has increasingly become a magnet for international investment. Attracted by the island strategic location and fiscal incentives and supported by Gran Canaria infrastructure and legal framework under the European Union umbrella, international investors are pouring into the island to settle their headquarters there and their businesses in West Africa or use the island as a tri-continental platform for light assembling.
Tourism is also a strategic sector in an Archipelago that receives 13 million tourists annually and has a population of barely 2 million people.
The island climate, with an average temperature of 24 degrees all year round is a mayor component of the island touristic success. But the island also is known for its long sandy beaches in the coast and high green montains in the inlands.
