From tomorrow, the Basque Government will have its second office in the United States, once the Deputy Minister for Innovation and Technology, Juan Goicolea, inaugurates it. These headquarters of the SPRI as well as the public-owned companies belonging to the Department of Industry, Innovation, Trade and Tourism are dedicated to helping Basque Businesses in San Francisco. The other office in Philadelphia opened 4 years ago.
With this new office, there will be 12 offices in total that the Basque Government has abroad to promote the internationalisation of Basque companies. At its core, is the Competitive Plan of the Department of Industry, Innovation, Trade and Tourism, which is carried out through the SPRI’s external network amongst others.
