About ICEX Invest in Spain

The Spanish Council of Ministers resolution of 16 March 2012 approving the Public Enterprise and State Foundation Rationalisation and Restructuring Plan sets out in Annexe IV the termination of Sociedad Estatal para la Promoción y Atracción de las Inversiones Exteriores, S. A. U. (Invest in Spain) through the transfer of all assets and liabilities to ICEX Spain Trade and Investment, in accordance with applicable commercial legislation.

On 7 December 2012, the transfer of all assets and liabilities was completed and Invest in Spain has since become the Invest in Spain Division at ICEX-Spain Trade and Investment, which is responsible for attracting foreign investment.
