The Consejo Interterritorial de Internacionalización (CII), which takes place twice a year, held its latest edition in Palma de Mallorca on 18 November.

The meeting, which began at 9:00 a.m. and took place at the Hotel Melia Palma Marina, was chaired by the Govern de Mallor and was attended by more than seventy representatives from all the autonomous communities, Confederación Española de Organizaciones EmpresarialesCámara de Comercio de EspañaSecretaría de Estado de Comercio and ICEX.

The aim of this meeting is to strengthen collaboration in the promotion of the internationalisation of Spanish companies and the attraction of investment in Spain.

Among the topics discussed at the council were the possible ways to reflect the internationalisation of a territory, especially those in which the main economic activity comes from the tertiary sector or services, as is the case of the Balearic Islands, the effect on trade and the productive structure of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, issues related to tourism promotion and the need to implement a system to measure the sustainability of promotional activities carried out by tourism promotion agencies.

Within the framework of this conference at 15:30h in the Port Authority building, Isabel Teruel, vice-president of Balearic Marine Cluster, explained the importance and weight of the nautical sector in the Balearic Islands.

The journey concluded with a visit by the members of the CII to Astilleros de Mallorca, led by Carlos Morales, general manager of the shipyard; and a visit to STP, with Joan Roselló, manager of STP.

Attendees made a very positive assessment of their visit and the work carried out by Balearic Marine Clúster to enhance and improve the competitiveness of a strategic sector such as the marine industry.

The next Consejo Interterritorial de Internacionalización (CII) will be held next semester in Extremadura.
