Barcelona City Council, with the goal of creating quality employment and, incidentally, encouraging productive investment, has begun to implement an action plan which aims to attract investors from United Kingdom. This decision was made following the economic uncertainty generated by the Brexit.
British businesses and entrepreneurs seeking solutions to Brexit in Barcelona
As stated in the Digital de Barcelona, this plan focuses on attracting all those companies and agencies that are part of the European Union and have their headquarters in the UK to Barcelona. After the referendum in which UK voted for Brexit, European businesses were living in uncertainty of not knowing what the future will bring for them. This plan, in particular, will consist of promotion, prospecting and collection services as well as granting aid to any entrepreneurs arriving to Barcelona.
During the autumn, the need to seize the opportunity has prompted organised visits from British companies who wish to settle in Barcelona. They are shown the advantages of not only continuing with their business activities in this city, but also to extend and grow for the future.
Meanwhile, on the basis of implementing actions as offered by the Muncipality of Barcelona, the headquarters of the European Medicines Agency, (la Agencia Europea del Medicamento) will be taken as promotional for business creating a business environment that's capable of focusing on the core of economic activity.
