"Spain stands out in the context of the EU for its high level of connectivity, the integration of digital technology and digital public services"
ICT is one of the fastest growing industries in Spain in the last decade and a key commitment of the central government and different Spanish regions.
Turnover in the ICT industry in Spain reached 115 billion euros in 2018, or 4.1% of GDP.
There are clusters or technological parks in practically every region in Spain. More than 35,000 Spanish and foreign ICT companies operating in the country directly employ more than 500,000 workers.
Spain's commitment to Information and Communication Technologies is linked to its European vocation and the conviction that in order to develop local industry and modernize the business structure, ICT must be reinforced, given the impact it has on improving productivity and business competitiveness, as well as its role in reshaping the business model.
As a member of the European Community, Spain provides a location for business consistent with its EU partners and, currently supports strategic projects included in the Digital Agenda for Europe.
