The provincial competences have two facets:
On the one hand, the provinces act as subordinated powers: they are in charge of the execution of the decisions taken by a higher power (State, Community, and Region)
On the other hand, the provinces are autonomous regional authorities acting for the provincial interests and specifically in all the disciplines that are not excluded by the Constitution, by a law or a decree. Therefore, the provinces are competent in various matters such as:

  • agriculture
  • culture
  • environment
  • economy
  • health
  • tourism
  • social matters
  • education

In the case of those disciplines, the province acts as part of the local autonomy.
