The Spanish economy, the fourth largest economy in the European Union (EU), is in the midst of its transformation. Driven by the EU's NextGenerationEU budget, traditionally attractive sectors (Pharmaceuticals & Chemicals; Medtech; and MEM) are gaining momentum. However, especially digitalisation and green transition are being the main actors of change, driving opportunities in the IT and Cleantech sectors. Spain also acts as an excellent gateway to the EU due to its first class Infrastructure and Logistics, as well as a historical link to Latin America and North Africa.
