This type of news is unusual, but it is still possible after all. President of the Spanish Government Pedro Sánchez met Tim Cook at Apple Park, as part of his trip to the United States to seek investments from major technology companies.

In search of investments by the best prepared companies

The image you can see in the header is part of two official tweets the president posted on Twitter, while Apple did not comment on the visit. Points raised during the meeting were also not disclosed, although the president added a post on social media:

Productive meeting with @tim_cook in San Francisco. Spain knows that digital transformation is a priority and the #Recovery Plan offers us a unique opportunity to take up this challenge. There is no better opportunity for big tech companies like Apple to invest in our country. pic.twitter.com/MIjQzXyI3j

Today I met @tim_cook in Cupertino. Spain knows that digital transformation is a priority and our #RecoveryPlan offers us a unique opportunity to meet this challenge. There’s no better time for tech giants like Apple to invest in our country. pic.twitter.com/e1qyf4wPu9

The investment in the technology that Sánchez is researching is an important part of the digitization plan that Spain seeks to do, something that would also be achieved with European funds to recover financially from the pandemic. In total, a combined investment of 4,000 million euros is sought.

Apple has already issued a press release ahead of this visit, showing that the company has already invested resources in Spain: more than 400 jobs last year and more than 1,500 million euros invested since 2016. It remains to be seen if after the visit an agreement will be reached which results in more investments.
