What companies' departure from Catalonia means — Q&A

Asian markets track Wall St up as US jobs come into view

Spanish stock ETFs have seen some small outflows following the controversial independence referendum in Catalonia, but the impact has been muted despite the shocking violence that ensued in the Spanish region and the number of headlines that have grabbed the news over the weekend.

Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez, leaders of Catalonia's two biggest pro-independence civil groups, and regional police chief Josep Lluis Trapero walked free from the preliminary hearing at the National Court in Madrid.

A call and email to Spain's Interior Ministry asking about the activists' plot were not immediately answered. Its coffee plant in Girona produces 2.4 billion capsules and 32,000 tons of instant coffee annually.

Not only have rallies and protests engulfed the streets of Barcelona, the question of Catalan independence has infiltrated the classroom for students abroad. Friday has seen a number of political, business and judicial developments in the unfolding crisis in Catalonia.

However, authorities have indicated that the sedition investigation continues.

Catalonia's regional parliament called the meeting Monday to evaluate the results of the referendum.

Human rights activists around the world, especially in developing countries, are watching how HRW would handle the crisis in Spain. For now, that does not affect jobs or investments.

Recent headlines of violence in Barcelona may have emerged as a shock to many travelers. The company's board is due to vote on moving its legal base on Friday, according to a source familiar with the situation.

In an interview with Spain's official EFE news agency, Rajoy said the solution in Catalonia "is the prompt return to legality and the affirmation, as early as possible, that there will be no unilateral declaration of independence, because that way greater evils will be avoided".

Italian asset manager Banca Mediolanum followed Sabadell's move, saying it would shift the legal base of its Spanish unit to Valencia from Barcelona.

Lucas Gomez, a Wake Forest junior native to Madrid who is spending the semester in Shanghai, also remains engaged in the issue.

Although it possesses many similarities to the rest of Spain, there are a few things that make Catalonia unique - most notably for visitors, the language.

Amid increasing uncertainty over the territorial integrity and stability of EU member state Spain, the Catalan crisis poses a real challenge for the future of the already-battered EU. "I will listen to all the positions, but the final decision will be mine".

Earlier on Thursday, commenting on whether the parliamentary session planned for Monday would take place, Puigdemont said, "That is for Parliament to decide". Instead of trying to suppress the result, the government of Canada could ignore it.

Abertis builds, maintains and operates highways in Spain, France and the Americas.

Should Catalonia, become independent we will be a committed and responsible actor within the international community.

If Catalonia declares independence, Spain could respond by suspending the region's existing autonomous status and imposing direct rule from Madrid.

There are concerns that other businesses could follow suit, threatening stability in Spain's most economically productive region.
