Situated in Southern Europe and North Africa, with ample access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, Spain is no doubt the logistical center of the region. It boasts the largest road and high-speed rail networks in the European Union (EU), and possesses numerous international airports and seaports as well. This robust infrastructure facilitates significant trade and tourism. In 2018, Spanish manufacturers generated 8% of the EU's total value of sold production. Spain also hosted nearly 83 million foreign travelers in 2018, which makes Spain the second-most visited country in the world (after France). Although Spain was hit particularly hard by the coronavirus in early 2020, it has since managed to get its outbreak under control. Much of the country has already reopened for business and external tourism (as of June 2020), and a gradual recovery is anticipated for most industries—which makes now the ideal time to enter the Spanish market.
