A unique location for those who seek a stable, profitable structure in which to invest

Over the course of its history, Biscay has overcome major crises and emerged stronger than ever as a society and a focal point for economic and business activity. Ever onwards, or as we say in Basque, Aurrera!

From the mid 19th century onwards Biscay underwent a far-reaching industrial transformation based on iron ore which made it a global economic benchmark by the turn of the 20th century, when 2/3 of Britain's iron-ore imports came from the mines of Biscay.

In the 1980s and 1980s the area underwent a restructuring of industry that profoundly changed its whole economic and urban structure. The site formerly occupied by the Euskalduna shipbuilding and repair yards is now home to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, which welcomes over 1.2 million visitors per year from all over the world.

Biscay has also bounced back stronger than ever from natural disasters such as the major flooding suffered by the whole territory in August 1983, in which parts of its capital Bilbao were under 3 m of water. In 1995 the Metro underground system opened, substantially improving links between the capital and outlying municipalities and districts.

Biscay has always emerged from times of hardship by creating new infrastructures, new economic activities, new forms of production, new models of society and opportunities for growth shared with domestic and foreign investment partners.

Biscay has grown into a compact society with standards of living and a quality of life which are among the highest in Europe. It is a safe, stable, modern society. It boasts effective transport links between its districts and municipalities, and with the rest of the world.
