Tétouan Chamber of Commerce Visits PTS

Representatives from the Chamber of Commerce of Tétouan (Morocco) have visited the Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) Foundation headquarters to find out about the Park's development plans. The visit was part of a business meeting organised by the Federation of Businesswomen of Granada (FEG). The Moroccan visitors were welcomed to the PTS by the Park's Director of Knowledge Transfer, Lourdes Núñez.

During the visit, the president of the Chamber of Commerce of Tétouan, Abdelatif Afailal, the other key figures from the Chamber who accompanied him, and the president and vice-president of the FEG, María Angustias Contreras and Pilar Sierra, were provided with detailed information about the development of the PTS. Around 700 million euros have been invested in the Park so far.

18 buildings are already up and running in the PTS and a further 6 are under construction, some almost completely finished. There are also 81 companies and other organisations with offices in the Park, employing almost 1,900 people, 49% of whom are working on R&D activities. The Park has already created more than 900 new skilled and highly skilled jobs.

After their visit to the PTS Foundation, the Moroccan visitors moved on to the BIC Granada Business Centre, where a number of Spanish and international firms known for their innovation and work in the fields of science and new technologies have offices. A tour of the Business Development Centre (CADE), run by the Ministry of Finance, Innovation, Science and Employment of the Autonomous Government of Andalusia, was planned for later.

The other representatives from the Chamber of Commerce of Tétouan were its vice-president, Mohamed Ben Issa, its secretary, Karim Ghazzoula, and business owners working in the construction, olive-growing and mechanical engineering sectors.
