3 1. THE CANARY ISLANDS The Canaries are made up of seven major islands of volcanic origin located off the West African coast at a distance of some 1,100 km from the Spanish mainland. Their strategic location makes it possible for residents to enjoy an enviable quality of life, with a superb climate (the annual average temperature ranges from a maximum of 27ºC in summer to a minimum of 15 C in winter), and a unique natural environment. The rich and varied vegetation of the islands and the beauty of the landscapes are the main attractions of the Canaries, making them not only the favourite holiday destination of the citizens of the European Union, but a luxury setting for the residents as they make it possible to combine to perfection business activity with the best options for leisure and relaxation.

4 2. FACTORS I. Fiscal Incentives, Grants and Subsidies a) Fiscal incentives The Canary Islands have historically enjoyed a differentiated and stable economic and fiscal regime so as to compensate for the effects of being islands and their remoteness from Europe. They have a Fiscal and Economic Regime of their own created by Act 19/1994 on the Fiscal and Economic Regime of the Canary Islands, subject to Spanish legislation and fully authorized by the EU. Fiscal incentives to business activity: The Canary Islands Special Zone (Zona Especial Canaria, ZEC pays Corporate Tax at a rate of 4% (instead of 30% under the general system). The Reserve for Investments in the Canary Islands (RIC): permits a reduction of up to 90% of the undistributed profits in the tax base of Company Tax. Exemption from Capital Transfer Tax (ITP) and Stamp Duty (AJD) for the incorporation, extension and acquisition of capital goods by the company. Advantages of Canarian Indirect General Tax (Impuesto General Indirecto Canario-IGIC): a local tax with advantages in comparison with IVA (the Spanish VAT) such as a general rate of 5%, not applied to certain goods and services such as telecommunications or the purchase of capital goods, as well as limitation due to volume of operation. Up to 50% tax rebate for the profit obtained from the sale of tangible goods produced in the Canary Islands. Important deductions in taxation for investments made in sectors of interest (up to 82%). Two free trade areas from a total of five in Spain. The companies that are established in the Canarian free trade areas can also take advantage of the benefits offered by the REF. Fiscal deduction for activities of R+D+i, currently the most advantageous in Spain (Canarian regime up to 75% and the General regime up to 35%).
5 The current high rate of economic development in the Canary Islands is due in large part to the growth in the service sector, which has made it possible to generate an investment fund of about 4.5 billions euros deriving from the fiscal incentive, Reserve for Investments in the Canary Islands (RIC). Capital available for the creation of new viable investment projects, which favour development in those sectors that diversify the productive fabric of the Canary Islands and generate skilled jobs. To this amount of capital generated by the investment reserve (RIC) must be added the Risk Capital Funds created in the Islands by private bodies or by autonomously managed agencies, together with the Regional Economic Incentives managed by the General Directorate of Economic Promotion of the Canary Islands Government. These incentives are European funds devoted to objective 1 areas for the promotion of business activity and reinforcing the development of the regions. The non-recoverable grants range between 25% and 40% of a minimum investment of 600,000. b) Grants and Subsidies Type of subsidy: Origin and/or programme European Programme of CAPITAL Regional SUBSIDIES Incentives.

7 b) Ports The most important flows are those coming from or heading for the African, European and South American continents, with regular container traffic and international transhipment, handling an average of 16 million tonnes every year. A permanent service with continental Spain and between the Canary Islands operates at the ports, both for the transport of cargo and passengers. The fleet operating in the Islands is the youngest in Spain, and it is mainly devoted to rolling cargo and passenger traffics in the whole Archipelago. International passenger traffic refers to passengers in tourist cruises. c) Technology or Business Parks In the Canaries, there are a number of technology and business parks devoted to providing the best possible services to their users and promoting the creation of clusters. With reference to the ICTs, two technology parks should be mentioned in particular, both of which are members of the Spanish national network of technology parks and each one has its own characteristics. ULPGC Technology Park (Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria) The first technology park in the Canary Islands oriented to the development of ICTs. The objective of the park is to bring together the R+D of the university in the area of ICTs with that of the private sector, facilitating the structures of both offices and of laboratories and staff. Area: 10,000m2 Services: Offices, Use of existing laboratories Security, Cleaning Reception Centre Locations: University Institutes: IUCTC (University Institute of Cybernetic Sciences and Technologies) - Tafira. IUMA (University Institute of Applied Micro-electronics) - Tafira. IUSIANI (University Institute of Intelligent Systems and Numerical Applications in Engineering) - Tafira. Centres of R+D+i: CICEI (Centre of Innovation for the Information Society) - Tafira. CIDIA (Instrumental Centre of Chemistry and Physics for the Development of Applied Research) - Tafira.
8 Research Groups: Thermodynamics Laboratory - Tafira. CAFMA (Laboratory of Analytical Control of Environmental Sources) Tafira. Tenerife Cabildo Technology Park It arose with the aim of encouraging the ICT sector on the island of Tenerife and supplying infrastructure to companies which are benefiting from the first Neutral Network Access Point (NAP) directed to Africa and located on this island. A number of multinationals in this sector have asked for space in the park to expand their activities on the island. Area: 630,000m2 280,000m2 in Santa Cruz (Cuevas Blancas) 350,000m2 in Granadilla Services: Those of a scientific and technological park: management of the flow of knowledge and technology between the university, the research institutions and the companies both inside and outside the park, assistance to the creation and growth of innovative companies, space and high-quality installations. The wealth of projects involving the innovation culture and competitiveness of companies and institutions that generate knowledge installed in the park or associated with it is promoted. Centre Locations: Under application (mostly departments of R+D+I of companies). d) Broadband and WAN The Canaries are currently connected with Europe and America by a number of underwater fibre-optic cables, as well as wide coverage by satellite (5 satellites) covering Africa and South America with great visibility from the Canary Islands. In 2008, the first Neutral Network Access Point (NAP) directed to Africa will start to be operative, for which the location is Tenerife. This project is executed by Terramark Worldwide. Mobile coverage 99% Km of Optic Fibre 50,000 km Operative ADSL WIFI zones 90 Digital Telephone Exchanges 660 Broadband coverage Population 92% Territorial 62% Source: Telefónica Canaries 2007
9 III. Settle down Costs It should be mentioned that the Canarian Indirect General Tax (Impuesto General Indirecto Canario - IGIC) is charged at a rate of 5% and replaces IVA (16%) which is valid elsewhere on Spanish territory. Among the exemptions from IGIC, the hiring and payment for telecommunications services is included.

10 b) Languages The Canaries stand out for their openness to the world deriving from the service sector and mainly tourism over the last few decades (approximately 13,000,000 holidaymakers in 2006). For this reason, learning languages is totally normal in the Islands. Here are a number of figures in this connection, particularly the number of bilingual schools and of foreign residents in the islands: Number of bilingual schools: 7 German schools 16 British schools 1 American school 2 Swedish schools 1 Norwegian school 1 Japanese school 3 French schools Residents from the EU: 142, SEVEN ISLANDS SEVEN WORLDS Surrounded by the cool blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands show off all their magic in an Archipelago unique in the world for its diversity and subtropical beauty.
