“Invest in Basque Country” is a working group from Grupo SPRI involved with securing and maintaining foreign direct investment (FDI). The objective is for foreign companies to choose the Basque Country when weighing up locations for setting up in Spain or Europe.
Foreign companies often look for local companies to help with their set up, which can be an opportunity for Basque companies.
