Gipuzkoa Garaile is a civil society initiative; a collaboration of people who have collectively reflected on Gipuzkoa’s present and future and on the tools we have available to drive us to success in overcoming the challenges that our community faces.
To that end, we want to create an economic structure based on people and their talents; on an industry advanced in research and innovation that is open to the world, and which values the entrepreneurial Gipuzkoan spirit; and with businesses that can actually undertake this shared project with ease – a project based on mutual trust and an ongoing, integrated collaboration between workers and employers. In short, competitive businesses which generate a profit while being socially committed and environmentally responsible.
the Starting Point
A place made up of committed people with technical expertise, in possession of values like ethics, hard work, risk-taking, willingness to change, solidarity, transparency, accountability, commitment, mutual respect and trust.
We need to increase our appeal as a land of opportunity for the creation of wealth, but also to capture people and businesses from outside our land. We should model ourselves on our European neighbours – pace-setting countries like Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland. We should also be skilled at penetrating global knowledge networks.
the Immediate Future
An efficient and accredited educational system using the best experiences from our cultural setting, which deepens our advances in knowledge through growing and decisive support for research, with all the necessary instruments that enable the strengthening of competition for our University, Vocational Training Centre and Science and Technology Network. And all of this in service to productive activity.
Businesses and the individuals that comprise them need an ecosystem that facilitates the expansion and development of knowledge, technology and research. Let’s work on it.
the Meeting Point
Without a competitive, productive and strong fabric to society, there is no future. What is good for its competitiveness and sustainability is good for employment, is good for the health of the public sector, and is good for the social welfare of citizens. In short, it is good for Gipuzkoa, and therefore also for Gipuzkoans.
A technologically advanced economic structure able to create products and services with high added value, with the added ambition of achieving a strong international presence.
The founding of an economic model in which a business is the result of a shared project based on trust between employers and workers, which is socially responsible, and which is a key player in the task of generating wealth and employment.
