The Spanish companies are on the front line of water and natural resources management, and also of power generation through techniques and processes designed to environmental conservation.
According to the OECD, Spain’s large companies are among the most productive internationally. Spanish firms are heading leading projects worldwide. The Mecca-Medina high-speed railway line, the Panama Canal’s new locks, the management of dozens of airports in several countries, the construction of the Ankara Metro, and so on. These are but a few of the Marca España projects. But the truth is that, in addition, we are the number two producers of automobiles en Europe; two of our banks (Santander and BBVA) are among the top five in the world and we are a world leader in renewable energy. This is all aside from the fact that Spain is a tourist power and that the agri-food industry leads in global exports of olive oil.
With speeds in excess of 300km/h, regenerative braking energy sent back to the grid and lower CO2 emissions, the Spanish high-speed railway (AVE) is clean, fast and safe.
Spain has a total of 46 ports of general interest, 46 airports and 2 heliports of general interest and almost 200,000 kilometres of roads.
