The Valencian industry has been able to demonstrate its capacity for resilience and adaptation during the first phase of the COVID crisis.

That is why our regional government has made a firm commitment to the industry by supporting initiatives where the Valencian leadership can be an advantage when it comes to meeting growth opportunities and the new activity marked by European priorities in the New industrial strategy for Europe, as well as the underlying provision that will promote and intensify the business projects that arise. During this webinar it is intended, on the one hand, to identify initiatives with a driving force and their adjustment to European priorities, and on the other hand, the exchange of good practices that allow us to grow and reinforce opportunities for our region.
