In May 2016, an agreement was signed between the Economic Development Agency of the Principality of Asturias and the Banco Popular that is set to promote the attraction of new investors to the region of Asturias.
This agreement is aligned with IDEPA’s strategy in terms of capturing new investment projects in Asturias with the objective of strengthening the region’s business fabric.
Eva Pando, the CEO of IDEPA; Carlos Durán, regional CEO of Banco Popular and Pablo Menéndez, the corporate banking director of the bank’s northwest region management, were responsible for sealing the collaborative agreement in an event held at the Asturias Technology Park, in the IDEPA headquarters.
The work of the two entities will aim to provide assistance to potential investors when it comes to investing in Asturias. One of the key aspects considered when establishing foreign investment is trust in the project, as well as the ease and efficiency of the process. Without a doubt, the synergies between these two institutions will facilitate access to information and will speed up the processes needed to ensure the investment project is successful.
The aim of the actions that will be undertaken within this collaborative agreement to promote investment will be to accompany potential investors during the various project phases. This will be undertaken using partners that will offer consultancy services, joint meetings during negotiations, and also accompaniment of future investment companies during their visits to Asturias.
