Catalan in Perpignan
PERPIGNAN / CATALONIA / SPAIN:
The Town Hall of Perpignan has some time ago decreed that Catalan is the second official language in the city. The region around Perpignan, also known as Northern Catalonia, has been working closely with the areas around Girona for years and wants to expand its economic relations. This is also what Girona is aiming for and wants to become more involved in the French market, which is of interest to many companies. One thing is for sure: at the moment, the proportion of people who go to France to shop from the region here is increasing enormously. Many products from the field of building materials or fashion items are there on the one hand in a larger selection available and on the other often much cheaper. And those who know the huge supermarkets and industrial parks around Perpignan with their product diversity know what is missing (sometimes) in Catalonia.
