Castellón

The City of Castellón de la Plana is the head of the Province of Castellón. Located on the Mediterranean coast, Castellón is a part of the Region of Valencia in Spain. The dynamic and enterprising spirit which always belonged to the people of Castellón turned the City into an economic and social nerve center for the whole Province. The economy of Castellón is historically based on the citrus fruits agriculture and the ceramics industry. Both of them are still outstanding in the City’s social structure, at present though the economic sectors like services and tourism also embodied the social structure thanks to the natural environment and the exceptional climate of the area.

The ceramics industry is a driving force for the economy of Castellón since 90 per cent of the Spanish ceramics industry is located in its surrounding area. This represents a 1 per cent of Spain Gross Domestic Product. This figures show the strength of this sector which assigns its efforts to innovation and finding new uses and applications for developing ceramics production.

The main challenge for Castellón within the UNIC project is “to build on the industrial wealth of the region to strengthen the image of the city as centre of attraction with a strong network of service organisations and facilities, including the building of major new exhibition centre, the “Palau de Convenciones”.
