The availability of people with the right skills becomes The key factor for economic growth

You will learn from private stakeholders based in Barcelona and Catalonia how companies are coping with “the war for talent”, and the role cities play in its retention and attraction. Their challenge is raising local talent, adapting the working force to new professional profiles, and attracting international talent. With regard to this, Barcelona and Catalonia are located at a prominent position within Europe. Which is the reason? It is their entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem. Which is their philosophy? It is a productive, innovative, sustainable, and integrating economy open to the world.
