Marbella sees an increase in applications for opening licences
According to an article published in Sur In English.com, a total of 88 applicantions for opening licences were processed in Marbella between December 2011 and January 2012, 70 per cent were for new premises and the remaninder for businesses which had undergone a change in ownership. This shows that, in spite of the economical crisis, Marbella is still a safe value.
This figure is 50 per cent higher than in the same period of the previous year, the Town Hall’s Commerce department confirmed. “What this reveals is that the small business sector remains active in Marbella. Even though many businesses have been forced to cease trading, almost immediately another one opens up, either in the same premises or somewhere else", says the councillor José Eduardo Díaz.
