Marine Supply Chain Opportunities - Basque Country & Northern Spain

Early in September, Santander, together with National Maritime, the Basque Trade & Investment Agency and the Basque Maritime Forum hosted a webinar on the Basque Country and Northern Spain’s Marine sector. This webinar is supported by the Department of International Trade (DIT) teams both in the UK and Spain and it will highlight trade opportunities for UK SME businesses.

Advanced manufacturing is one of the main industrial sectors of the Basque economy and a priority1. It is key to the country’s industrial tradition and has close links to the Marine supply chain.

Why Basque Country?

The Basque Country is a natural industrial environment that provides outstanding conditions for the development of the Maritime sector with its location, modern communications infrastructure, and human mobility to the fore. The Maritime sector plays an important role in the economy, representing approximately 1.74% of its GNP2. It possesses advance technology and high added value, fitting well with the Basque Country, which is not only technologically advanced but a country with history, culture and activities linking to maritime traditions that goes back many centuries.

We had speakers from National Maritime, Basque Trade & Investment and the Basque Maritime Forum who shared with us the help that is on offer to access the trade and investment opportunities in this market for UK businesses of all sizes. Click on the red button to listen to the webinar.
