MADRID (Reuters) – Facebook owner Meta Platform said on Tuesday that it would hire 2,000 people in Spain over the next five years, where it would consolidate its plans for the region’s development.

The 2,000 employees will mostly work in the company’s first “laboratory”, a flexible base for remote employees in Madrid, said Cross-Meta Products and Infrastructure Vice President Javier Olivan after meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez in Madrid.

Spain will be an important link for Meta’s development in Europe as its two submarine cables connecting the region with America and Africa land in Spain, and the company plans to build a data center in Castile-La Mancha in central Spain.

Olivan also said his company will set up the Metaverse Innovation Center in collaboration with local telecommunications company Telefonica.
