西班牙政府拟推出新政,凡购买价值16万欧元及以上房产的外国人,将可获得西班牙永久居留权。该政策的主要目标人群为中国人和俄罗斯人。自2008年房市泡沫破裂以来,西班牙大批房产因购买者无力偿还按揭而被银行收回,到目前银行收回的空置房产已超过100万套,西班牙的经济也一直处于衰退或瘫痪边缘。对于此项吸引外资的政策,西班牙最大的工会组织UGT表示批评,称移民政策根据劳动力市场的需求而定,这项政策只是给西班牙招来一些有钱又不干活的富人而已。

Spain is considering offering rich investors from countries such as Russia and China the right to settle in return for them buying up property in the stagnant housing sector.

Spain is considering offering rich investors from countries such as Russia and China the right to settle in return for them buying up property in the stagnant housing sector.

Spain has more than a million empty homes across the country and is setting up a bad bank to clean up toxic assets from a housing bubble which burst in 2008.

Foreigners could be offered a residency permit if they buy a property worth 160,000 euros ($200,000) or more, the country's commerce secretary said on Monday.

"We're looking at markets such as the Russian or Chinese, among which there is already a strong demand for Spanish real estate," Jaime Garcia-Legaz said during a conference.

Garcia-Legaz said his ministry was consulting the other departments about the idea and gave no figures about how many foreign individuals might be tempted to buy in Spain in order to get Spanish residency.

The government is also trying to drum up interest among foreign investors in participating in its bad bank and will meet with five banks this week, sources told Reuters.

Spain's second largest union, the UGT, criticized the proposal, saying immigration policy should be based on the needs of the labor market.

"It wants to attract foreigners who are obviously rich and able to buy and can supposedly remain in Spain without working with the aim of getting rid of a stock of houses that are largely in the hands of the banks," said the UGT in a statement.

Spain's economy has been either in recession or near-paralyzed since 2008 after the decade-long property boom went sour, sending housing prices tumbling more than 30 percent.

Real estate prices are expected to fall up to 30 percent more before leveling out, economists say, while there is estimated to be more than a million homes around the country.

Spanish banks' bad loans ratio hit a new high in September, the Bank of Spain said on Monday, with massive unemployment and the economic downturn hitting Spaniards ability to repay their debts.
