Invest in Spain is your strategic ally if you are seeking business opportunities and considering investing in Spain.

We are an Executive Board of ICEX-Spain Trade and Investment, a public and business entity of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism.

Our mission is to promote foreign direct investment (FDI) in Spain and to support business owners and entrepreneurs that want to set up their companies in Spain. 

What are our objectives?

  • To attract foreign investment - Our goal is to promote, attract and consolidate foreign direct investment in Spain, especially focusing on new investment projects in industry, technology and services.
  • To team up with investors - To facilitate collaboration between international investors and Spanish companies that want to expand and develop their activities in Spain.
  • To position Spain as a global platform for international business and investments and as an internationalized and competitive economy.

Business climate

We are working to improve Spain's business climate and appeal as a recipient of foreign direct investments. One of our activities is to propose changes to the regulatory framework in order to make it easier for companies to invest and do business in Spain.

In addition to our HQ in Madrid, we do this through our international network of over 100 economic and commercial offices worldwide.
