The Spanish economy could cross a small pause and not increase the growth expectations that the various international organisms and financial institutions estimated. The following graphic shows the evolution of the Spanish GDP.

The three Autonomous Communities that we will evaluate are Andalusia, the Community of Madrid and the Valencian Community which show a growth trend of their GDP very similar to the growth of the Spanish GDP. As can be observed from the graphic, the Valencian Community is the one that was mostly affected by the crisis and whose growth was slowly and more constant.

Las tres Comunidades Autónomas que vamos a valorar son Andalucía, Comunidad de Madrid y Comunidad Valenciana que muestran un crecimiento de su PIB muy parecido al del crecimiento del PIB español.

Como se puede observar en la gráfica, la Comunidad Valenciana es la comunidad que más le afecto la crisis y cuyo crecimiento ha sido más tardío y constante.
