Opening new pathways for cooperation in innovation and technology

Casa Asia brought together representatives of several industries to explore cooperation possibilities between Barcelona and India

After Casa Asia Director Ramón Moreno welcomed the participants, Catalan MP Inma Riera took the floor: “The economy is currently stabilising and allowing us to grow thanks to the strength of the foreign sector. However, we can only keep up this pace by committing to an innovation strategy. Our policies should focus on fostering the competitiveness of businesses through innovation.” Jordi Majó, Head of Economic Development of Mobile World Capital, considers the support of the Catalan authorities to innovation as key to turn the city into a European digital hub for entrepreneurs and startups. He encouraged the Leaders to harness the impressive penetration of mobile Internet in India, where close to 300 million people have Internet access: “India has a great chance to digitalise the economy and Barcelona has a lot to contribute.”

Majó explained that economic integration in the digital world is Mobile World Capital's mission, and that “the main Indian operators” are present at Mobile World Congress, the world's largest digital technology event. In turn, Miquel Mateu encouraged the Leaders to get involved in the IAEC 2014 International Association Education Cities event, where they could share their country's expertise in the industry.
