During the second quarter of this year 2019, the Andorran economy has grown by 2.3%, above the growth rates recorded for France and Europe and on a level with the Spanish economy. These positive overall results are the result of strong dynamism in the service sector, the country’s economic pillar which, according to official data, represents 80% of the GNP.
Between 2,500 and 3,000 vehicles are registered in Andorra every year. Nearly 10% of these are re-registrations of imported vehicles, which covers vehicles with foreign number plates that are brought in by new residents coming to live and work in Andorra.
From 1 July people of Andorran nationality and residents of the country with a nautical card issued in Andorra can crew vessels that are not registered in the Principality, whether private or hired. Through a decree-law, the Government has ended the obligation of crewing exclusively vessels with registration under the Andorran flag.
The film sector in the Principality of Andorra has grown in recent years, enabling Andorra to be presented abroad as an ideal location for audiovisual projects, among other opportunities. Conscious of the media coverage of these productions, the Government of Andorra has decided to offer a grant of €100,000, to be awarded to one film project.
