Investing in Galicia

In accordance with EU regulations, there is virtually absolute liberalisation of foreign investments and exchange controls.


A large number of Spanish and foreign companies have chosen to invest in Galicia. The most relevant sectors are motor vehicles, agri-food companies, mining and derivatives, call centres, aeronautics, leisure, biotechnology and pharmacy. The majority of foreign investments in Galicia are from EU countries, although significant investments have also been made by companies from the USA, Canada, Venezuela, Japan and China.


One of the main aims of the IGAPE is to attract new investment projects to Galicia. In this case, the IGAPE provides companies with new investment projects specialised and individualised support for each project, maximising funds and subsidies for investment, training and hiring, through the corresponding institutions, risk capital, etc.
