The average Spaniard worked 1,665 hours in 2013 -  more than people in Germany (1,388) or France (1,489), a new study published by Madrid’s Institute of Economic Studies (IEE) reveals, but productivity remains a major obstacle to growth in Spain.
The IEE used data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to compare the number or hours worked in different countries.
The average number of hours worked per person in OECD member states as a whole was 1,770 but the figure for most EU member was lower .
Mexicans worked most hours (2,237) while people in the Netherlands worked fewest (1,380).
