BCN Industry Virtual Week

Mediterranean Automotive Conference by ASCAME

The automotive industry is going through a time of uncertainty compounded by the rapid spread of COVID-19. Creating a Mediterranean hub for the manufacture of vehicles has enormous possibilities, becoming a regional platform that would facilitate industry, trade and logistics worldwide. The Mediterranean region can become an international manufacturing and assembly center from which to access Africa, Asia and Europe and influence world markets. Cheap energy, the availability of raw materials, a young workforce that can be trained in the necessary skills and a large potential consumer market are some of the advantages offered by a Mediterranean region ASCAME is launching this conference on investment in the automotive industry to discuss how to incentivize the sector and expand its capacity to manufacture, export, create jobs and boost the market.
