Carlos Rosado, President of the Spanish Film Commission: “Shooting is no longer concentrated only in Madrid and Catalonia”

At the roundtable to close the ‘Assets’ presentation, the speakers talked about the economic development opportunities in Extremadura and the necessity for the economy to grow. The note of optimism was put by Carlos Rosado, president of the Spanish Film Commission. “When our agency specializing in filming in Spain was born in 2001, 80% of the shooting was done in Madrid and Barcelona, ​​where much of the audiovisual industry is concentrated. They represent only 41%, greatly increasing the number of filmings in Spain.. This year, we estimate that direct investment in the film includes €280 million and Social Security contributions of 24 million. At the event held in Badajoz, sponsored by the Spanish Film Commission and JTI, Rosado said that this change in trend and growth is due to the training of internal talent and skilled technicians, which creates greater economy and employment within the country.

The council leader believes that “special attention should be paid to education”: “It is difficult for young people to want to stay in Extremadura. We must try to take advantage of the strengths of this land. At the moment mentalities are changing and people want to have a different life project here, We must be prepared so that those who want to return do not lose much.“.

Macroeconomic status conditions

Unlike the 2008 crisis, private debt reduced and family and corporate indebtedness decreased“.

Regarding the real estate market, Unicaja’s regional manager acknowledged that the slowdown is already appreciated: “We expect a 15%-20% decline in sales and a 30% decline in the mortgage market.. This is not because businesses have stopped issuing mortgages, but because more of them are paid in cash. We are more positive about the prices, we anticipate they will stay the same or increase slightly.”

Going public is not an option for Spanish companies
