The purpose of this paper is to reveal the historical development, diversity, and economic activities of the Chinese community in Spain. It also clarifies the haracteristics of the Chinese community in Spain, comparing it to those in other European countries. In conclusion, compared with the diversity of Chinese people in the U.K., rance, and the Netherlands--where since the 1980s people from mainland China have joined people from Hong Kong or Indochina （from where immigration peaked in the 1960s and 1970s）, the Chinese community in Spain--where less educated people （mainly from Zhejiang）immigrated since the 2000s--is homogeneous. It has been found that the characteristics of the economic activities of the Chinese community in Spain include the rapid transition of small businesses from catering to sewing, resale and wholesale, and running wholesales or import-export goods shops produced in China or other European countries. It should also be noted that there is great similarity between the Chinese community in Spain and that in Italy.The Chinese population in Italy is larger than that in Spain, and there is a span of economic activities in the cities due to this larger population that is not seen in Spain.
