Barcelona promotes economic activity of aliens

On October, 25 will be held the event organized by I'm Barcelonian and under the name “Expat Day”, which will bring together entrepreneurs from other countries living in the Catalan capital.

Thus, the municipality of Barcelona aims to promote the brand of the city on the global economic stage and encourage entrepreneurs from the foreign community.

The city council wants, in addition, to facilitate the integration and preservation of international talent in the city, to which will be devoted, namely the “Expat Day” on Saturday, October 25. The event, to be held at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona and which can be visited free with pre-registration on the site, aims to be a meeting place for the international community in Barcelona, which is about 16.7% of the total population of the city.

The program includes the presentations and reports with the information about useful services for newcomers to the city, as well as the presentation of services aimed at stimulating investment and directly related to the business, as well as the representation of cultural offers availables for the residents, and possibilities for establishing  contacts with the local population. In turn, the conference will also have time for recreation and cultural activities.

This initiative aims to promote economic activity in the part of foreign residents, because they are not only an important human capital, but also can make a significant contribution to the spread of Barcelona brand worldwide.

Organised by I'm Barcelonian the “Expat Day”, is part of a important strategy of the city authorities to promote an increase in popularity of the city, and loyalty on the part of the international community. Other initiatives that contribute to achieving this goal are publications Welcome Barcelona and International Schools in Barcelona, which are practical guides for foreign professionals, based in the capital of Catalonia.

At the same time, the Catalan capital is not the first city which participates and organizes such events. Other European cities such as Amsterdam, Zurich and Hamburg, are trying to stimulate economic activity of the foreign community with similar initiatives.
