High levels of unemployment and the property bubble burst have let to an exodus of immigrants and Spaniards alike.
It is estimated that 206,000 foreigners have left the country due to the economic crisis. The most notably immigrants to return home include those from Ecuador and Colombia as well as others from the Latin American region and parts of Eastern Europe.
These numbers do not take into account natives who are still registered but have left the country to find work.
Will this exodus help with the job situation? Or will it also cause a ‘brain drain’?
