Sections of a transversal nature have also been created that demonstrate all the potential for the Spanish entrepreneurial, innovation and sustainability ecosystem. The website also includes sections that target investors from specific geographical areas, like the China Desk, aimed at Chinese entrepreneurs and available in their language, and the Latam Desk, for entrepreneurs from Latin America.

As a meeting point between the central and regional administrations, the new Invest in Spain website provides information on the foreign investment possibilities available in each of the 17 regional autonomous communities. Finally, the new website includes details of the Secretary of State's broad foreign network of economic and commercial offices as essential points of contact for foreign companies.
