Bilbao City Council

Metropolitan Bilbao is home to around half the population and economic activity of the Basque Country, one of the most competitive European regions. Bilbao is a city that has been able to turn “problems” into “opportunities”. The need for change, due to the decline of the industrial era, made the way to the new post-industrial metropolis. Over the last 30 years Bilbao has evolved to a modern and reliable city, it is efficient, friendly and an attractive place to live, work and visit. Today, the economic and social environment and climate of the city stimulates the development of new technologies, promotes innovative industry, with high added value, and boosts the tourism, culture, leisure and services of an advanced society. Bilbao is a city open to the world.
