Looking back on 2021
As we approach the end of the year, we’d like to review and look back on what 2021 has meant to Barcelona-Catalonia in terms of foreign investment. The region has flourished as a tech hub for global companies, welcoming new projects such as those from Pepsico, Microsoft, Porsche Digital or Festo. Many multinational companies have chosen Catalonia to establish their operations for Southern Europe, such as Amazon, Maersk and Decathlon. We invite you to have a look at the review of the year 2021 and we wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
