Spain ready to consider giving Catalonia greater fiscal autonomy

In hopes to soften the crises brought on by the referendum in Catalonia last month that culminated in unilateral declaration of independence (for a moment), Spain is now ready to discuss giving Catalonia greater fiscal autonomy. The country might be ready to offer Catalonia the power to collect and manage its own taxes. The system would be similar to the one autonomous Basque country has right now.

A senior official said that "If the Catalans ask for a fiscal pact, we are ready to discuss this. The Basque country [in northern Spain] and Navarre collect their own taxes. They have their own system and there is a meeting between the Basque country and the central government and they decide how much they contribute to foreign policy and defence. It's a negotiation. Every five years. We are open to discuss this, taking into account that the constitution of Spain also establishes solidarity [among the Spanish regions]."

Similar fiscal pact was proposed by Catalonia's president Artur Mas in 2012 but was then blocked by the Spanish government.
