作为一个快速增长的经济体, 西班牙 is among the ten most attractive destinations in the world for direct investments by companies from abroad. It is also the third largest recipient of greenfield projects in 欧洲. In combination with an increase in industrial productivity, this creates many interesting opportunities for Swedish companies.

Opportunities for Swedish companies

很长一段时间, Swedish businesses have been present on the Iberian Peninsula, and today there are over 550 companies with an office in the area. Thanks to PG电子官方免费下载’s good reputation, there is a strong demand for Swedish goods and services. Especially for efficiency-enhancing 信息通信技术 solutions in the private and public sector, we see a great potential to enter the Spanish market. Other important sectors are the chemical industry, 银行, 航空航天和汽车, 医疗保健和生命科学, 基础设施和能源.

Spanish companies have a strong strategic position in key sectors in Latin America. A network in 西班牙 may facilitate market entry over there and can also accelerate growth for Swedish companies. 因此, many international companies choose 西班牙 as the location for their Latin American headquarters. 然而, establishing your business in 西班牙 can involve a few challenges in terms of bureaucracy and language barriers, as you will read below in the short talk with our country manager 莎米拉Grylin-Allalou.

What are the main advantages for expansion in 西班牙?

The Iberian Peninsula is a promising market with a lot of potential. Especially 西班牙 has experienced a strong recovery after the economic crisis of 2008-2014. A presence in 西班牙 often functions as a springboard to kick off business activity in Latin America. In this respect, there is a lot of untapped potential for Swedish companies. Interesting industries are the automotive and aviation industry, 信息通信技术, 医疗行业, the energy sector and the manufacturing industry. Portugal is especially interesting for Swedish businesses in the textile industry who want to scale their production within the EU.

What are the risks and challenges companies may face in 西班牙?

Both 西班牙和葡萄牙 are EU members, so we don’t see any major obstacles or risks when expanding your business in these countries. The main challenges for Swedish companies are related to bureaucracy and language barriers. Doing business in 西班牙 without a basic knowledge of Spanish might be difficult. In Portugal, however, most people do speak good 英语.

Are there any cultural aspects to consider?

Both 西班牙和葡萄牙 are more bureaucratic than what we are used to in PG电子官方免费下载. Expect to invest a lot of time in getting in touch with the right contact persons, especially people at top of an organisation. Perseverance, planning and a long-term strategy are key here. Growing your network in 西班牙 is based on establishing solid personal relationships. That's why local presence in the market is the most efficient way to push your business forward.
