Andorra: Country and Foreign Investment

Government

Andorra is an independent European state with a democratically elected parliament; the titular heads of state are represented locally by officials called vergeurs. The uni-cameral legislature (the Consell General de las Valls) with 28 members is elected every 4 years, half directly by the parishes, and half through a national constituency list. The co-princes appoint a Cap de Govern (Prime Minister) on a recommendation from the Consell General, and the Prime Minister then appoints an executive cabinet.

The legal system is based on the French and Spanish civil codes, with an independent judiciary under the 1993 Constitution. Andorra is a business-friendly jurisdiction, but legal processes may become somewhat complex at higher court levels.
