Microsoft to expand cloud and AI in Spain

In its ongoing commitment to bolster artificial intelligence infrastructure and expertise throughout Europe, Microsoft has extended its focus to Spain. Brad Smith, the Vice-Chair and President at Microsoft, revealed that the company is set to inject $2.1 billion into Spain over the next two years. This substantial investment aims to facilitate the expansion of Microsoft’s AI and cloud infrastructure within the country.

“Our investment is beyond just building data centres, it’s a testament to our 37-year commitment to Spain, its security and development, and digital transformation of its government, businesses and people,” Smith wrote.

Spanish president Pedro Sánchez welcomed the investment and said that it would “quadruple” the software giant’s commitment in the country.

He also said that the deal will involve cooperation between Spain and Microsoft on strengthening cybersecurity and AI in public administration, noting that public-private collaboration is “essential to successfully face the challenges of digital transformation”.
