To accomplish its mission, the Port of Barcelona has evolved in parallel to the hinterland it serves. Its region is characterised by a wide range of productive sectors.
Ports are large service infrastructures that generate wealth, not only within the Port precinct, but also throughout the hinterland they serve.
The Port's contribution to improving the competitiveness of its customers, in terms of the profits that clients obtain from the Port, stands at 22.865 billion euros.
The city of Barcelona's tourist activity has continued to grow over the last few years, making this sector one of the foundations of the city's economy.
