Galicia is going through an exceptional period in its history. Since 1981, Galicians have had a parliament and a government elected within a system of plurality that has received extensive powers from the central government.
Galicia has greater specialisation in activities such as fishing and aquiculture, forestry and the wood industry, the manufacture of vehicles, extraction industries, electrical energy, petroleum refining and the textile sector.
Our grandparents came from the country.
In 1900 only 10% of the population lived in cities; today, almost half of the Galician population lives in the big cities.
This is the scenario of economic and cultural creativity.
The productive fabric of Galicia became internationalised through large multinationals while it has a substratum of small and medium sized enterprises with substantial presence abroad.
