|This study day examines a variety of ways in
which Barcelona is recovering its leading role as a magnet for foreign direct
investment and as Spains industrial powerhouse.
Visits can be made to Zona Franca, Logistics Park, Parc
Tecnològic del Vallès (Science Park of El Vallès), the Autonomous University
of Barcelona and the inner city 22@ district.
Contrasts are made between these different industrial zones,
and their importance to the Catalan and Spanish economy analysed.
The day may be combined with a factory visit, e.g. the SEAT car
plant at Martorell, near Barcelona.
