Former mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg said that talent attracts capital in a more sustainable and long-term manner than vice versa. We at Barcelona Global are convinced that Barcelona has the wherewithal to create, attract, and retain creative, entrepreneurial, scientific, investment and other professional talent, as well as companies looking for a place to establish themselves. But we need to guarantee first-class opportunities for both citizens and for the talent we want to attract and to ensure that Barcelona remains high in the rankings of favorite places in which to live and work.
Planning for the future means planning for the entire Greater Barcelona metropolitan area. Job opportunities must be spread throughout the territory; the area must be affordable in terms of housing, transportation and services, and it must be well connected both locally and internationally.
