ACICAE: Presentation of the Automotive Cluster from the Basque Country

Founded in 1993 in the Basque Country, ACICAE is a non-profit making business association with the mission to improve competitive levels in the region’s automotive industry.

One of the first ever clusters in Europe; ACICAE was launched with the support of the Basque Government following Professor Michael Porter’s methodology.

Since then it has evolved rapidly and is one of the major reasons why earnings in the Basque automotive industry have multiplied four-fold in the last fifteen years to ten thousand million euros.
