Amazon Web Services this week announced plans to invest €15.7 billion in Spain into its AWS Europe (Spain) Region. 

“We are committed to supporting Spain across multiple areas," said Suzana Curic, AWS country manager, Spain and Portugal. "Beyond direct investments and jobs supported, we plan to continue our partnerships with local schools and community initiatives to support talent development, community education programs, and sustainability initiatives.”

The Minister for Digital Transformation and the Public Service, José Luis Escrivá, said: “Amazon Web Services' decision to choose Spain places us at the forefront of technology innovation and artificial intelligence in Europe and confirms, once again, Spain’s ability to support technology talent and quality jobs in the long term."

"The solar and wind energy projects we are promoting help us power our operations, as well as provide clean energy to the grid and support the economic growth of the communities where our employees and our customers live and work," said Mariangela Marseglia, VP and general director of Amazon in Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
