Imagine a country where security represents one of its main assets, with an exceptional climate, where the four seasons are well de ned, with an excellent quality of air, where more than 100 nationalities live together with respect and tolerance. Imagine an inviting country, with 3 different educational systems to choose from (French, Spanish and Andorran), with an enviable public health system, withrst-rate equipment, a healthy and varied high-quality gastronomy, a prominent o er of goods and services, an ancient history and a highly competitive tax framework… well, your imagination can become reality once you arrive in our country. Andorra o ers all of these features in a natural way. For eight centuries, we have been able to adapt to developments and all the changes that have been taking place throughout time, and where peace has never been disrupted throughout our history.
Globalization, together with the new digital era has made the world increasingly smaller, therefore, who can adapt better to the new reality than a small country? Adjustment have been made to be internationally homologated and to adapt to the requirements of international controlling bodies: taxation, sharing of information, labor legislation… the mentioned adjustments have occurred in a swi manner; in a few years Andorra has embraced changes that other countries have taken decades to implement.
Now that our homework has been done, it is time for us to get to work together: we have to present Andorra to the world. We need the involvement of the entire country, since we are all Ambassadors of our country. People that discover Andorra remain positively surprised during their rst visit, and many of them come back again as tourists. We now need that the visitors that come back perceive our country as an ideal place to live and develop their business. Andorra warmly welcomes everyone who sees the country as an opportunity to develop their projects, as well as a place where they will be able to enjoy all things that someone can dream of when looking for the best place to live. e Andorran Business Confederation (CEA) is working, and will continue working, to explain the amendments that Andorra has made to adapt to this new era. To all of those who need support, information and help: our doors are open and we will be very pleased to assist you.
