A WELL-CONNECTED COUNTRY

The Basque Country is strategically located in the centre of the European Atlantic Axis. This location, as a transit zone between the peninsular markets and the rest of Europe, makes this Autonomous Community a core area of influence.

Its location and a first-rate logistics and transport infrastructure network, which is perfectly coordinated and interconnected internally and with the major European networks, make the Basque Country an incomparable multimodal logistics platform for transporting goods and people in Southwest Europe. The Basque Country is the gateway to Europe as the logistics hub of the European Atlantic Axis and the rest of the world, particularly Latin America, where there is a notable presence of Basque companies and institutions.

The fDi report from the Financial Times British publishing group put the Basque Country as the top medium-sized region in Europe in terms of connectivity (logistics), with the sixth best strategy for attracting foreign investment. Moreover, it was the fifth best region in Southern Europe in terms of all investment attraction indicators as a whole.
