The Minister of Public Works, Ana Pastor, said earlier this week, during her speech at the event “Construye España” (Spain Builds), that the Spanish companies have obtained works abroad valued at 11,800 million Euros since the beginning of this year.

These new projects of 2016 add to the international work portfolio in which national firms were working until the end of 2015, with an estimated value of 76,500 million Euros, an amount equivalent to 87% of all the works that have been currently ordered to Spanish construction companies.

“No one is surprised anymore about the fact of highlighted infrastructure around the world take the seal of the Spain Brand,” said the minister, standing out the Canal of Panama, the HST to Mecca or the metro of Riyadh as some of these great works.

“España Construye” is the new campaign of the High Commissioner of the Spain Brand and focuses on the role of construction in the development of major projects around the world.
