MADRID — One fifth of foreigners living in Spain plan to make the country their permanent home, a survey has found.
Europeans are the mostly likely to spend the rest of their lives here.
Most of those who wanted to settle permanently in Spain, lived in Catalonia.
Those who lived in Madrid or Valencia were not so convinced that they never wanted to return home.
The survey by Spain's Immigration Observatory also showed Latin Americans were the most keen to go back home.
But only four percent of those questioned said they thought they would do this in the next year.
Africans were the most uncertain about their futures.
The majority of East Europeans felt that their future in Spain depended on how the economic situation in their own countries progressed.
