The digitalization of economy is a given fact. The installation of the EllaLink cable will enable the development of a new digital and innovation hub in Sines. So far, Brazil has no direct infrastructure connecting to Europe and the fact that Sines is the gateway to the EllaLink submarine cable reaffirms the strategic importance of this municipality. We are working with EllaLink for the cable installation, as well as with aicep Global Parques, in order to capture technological and digital investment for the municipality, which will contribute to the diversification of our local economy and the creation of a new cluster in Sines. This is not simply a Sines project, it’s a European, South American and global project.
