Presentations Corner Bilbao city of opportunities

14 october
10.00 to 10.30
Venue: 
Network Hub

Description

The presentation aims to show how a city, traditionally considered an industrial one, had to face the decline of the industrial era, making way to become a post-industrial metropolis. During the last 30 years Bilbao has become a competitive, modern, efficient and attractive city to live, work and visit.
 
Currently, the social and economic climate of the city stimulates the development of new technologies, promotes industrial innovation with a high value added and encourages tourism, culture, leisure and other services of an advanced society.
