BEST SOUTHERN EUROPEAN REGION for investments in future technologies.
The Financial Times group recognised Catalonia as the best Southern European region for investment for 2018 and 2019, calculated this based on
five criteria: economic potential, labour environment, cost
effectiveness, infrastructure and business friendliness.
It also rated Catalonia as having the best investment attraction strategy amongst the regions in Europe qualified as large.
Major events planned for the region include Mobile World Capital and Congress and the Smart City Expo, which are contributing to the region’s reputation as a digital and start-up hub.
Relevant investors can also take advantage of a multitude of research facilities, living labs and testing facilities, which include smart cities, autonomous driving facilities and a global 3D printing hub. The region is home to MareNostrum4, Spain’s premier (and Europe’s third largest) supercomputer.
