THE regional government of Catalonia on Tuesday formally requested nine billion euros ($A11.71 billion) from a rescue fund created by Spain to save its financially beleaguered regions.

“The amount planned by the Spanish Interior and Public Administration Ministry is 9.073 billion euros,” the government of Catalonia said in a statement on Tuesday.

The request comes less than a week after Catalonia’s parliament approved a declaration of sovereignty that may lead to a vote on self-determination for the region whose leaders want greater autonomy from Spain.
