The UK is the second largest investor in Madrid. In 2021, 88% of the British capital that came to Spain entered the Community of Madrid. That is why the regional government is working to strengthen this relationship, which generates so much employment and wealth for the people of Madrid.
This month, the Government of the Community of Madrid and its agency for the promotion and attraction of foreign investment, Invest In Madrid, travelled to London to meet with the business community in the City of London and explain to them in person the countless advantages of investing in our region.
It has been three days of scheduled visits, seminars and meetings aimed at consolidating economic ties between the two regions. Many investors based in London are looking for new locations to take their businesses and assets to, and Madrid, increasingly well positioned among the major European regions, has enormous potential to become their investment destination:
Because of our economic position within Spain, to which we contribute 20% of GDP.
Because of our transport infrastructure and unbeatable location in the centre of the peninsula, which gives us direct access by land, sea and air to international markets in Europe, Asia, America and North Africa.
For our technological infrastructure, with a high penetration of fibre optics, submarine cabling and data centres, which have made us the technological hub of Southern Europe and the headquarters of large IT companies.
Because of our innovative ecosystem and the talent of our professionals.
And for many more tangible and intangible factors. Madrid is the place to be.
