The Region of Murcia

Murcia is a single-province region located in Southeast Spain, between the regions of Andalusia and Valencia. Two popular features of the Region of Murcia are its more than 100 kilometers of Mediterranean coastline, as well as the largest salt water lagoon in Europe known as Mar Menor. The Region of Murcia has a population of over one million people.

In regards to economics, Murcia is one of the main producing regions of fruits, vegetables and flowers in Europe, which explains why it is home to a solid agrofood industry exporting up to 70% of its production to other EU countries. Wine production is also significant, both in terms of quantity and quality. The Region's tourism, leisure and business sector is known for its high standards, offering a variety of services that satisfies the needs of clients worldwide. Other international-oriented industries in the Region of Murcia are energy generation, petrochemicals, canned food, marble and furniture, pharmaceuticals, ship building and maintenance, as well as technology development for the agrofood sector, among others.

But the most valuable asset of Murcia is its hospitality, warm climate and friendly people, together with an entrepreneurial and innovative nature that have led many to choose this land since ancient times.
