PUBLIC Service director on Palma City Council, Tomas Llado, said yesterday that pending final figures, population surveys taken over the last few years show that growth in the number of people living in the city is slowing down, most recently as a result of the economic crisis.

Llado confirmed that as of 1st January this year, there were 422'387 registered as being resident in Palma, 8'606 more than the same date of the previous year. He added, however, that these figures are provisional and there could be last minute variances when final statistics emerge in a few weeks time. Llado said that Palma is now the city of Spain with the eighth highest number of inhabitants, and has the highest number of foreigners included in its population census than any other regional capital, with 22.11 percent of the total.
