The design sector in Barcelona
Barcelona has long been committed to design as one of the ten strategic sectors that make up the city’s portfolio, understanding that design is a sector that adds value to Barcelona’s proposal and one of the key driving forces behind the economy, knowledge and innovation. Design has become one of the most important elements in business strategies. Being different, innovative and competitive in a globalized world entails applying successful design management. Furthermore, few places in the world can boast their own distinctive design culture. Catalonia,and Barcelona in particular,are two of these places.
