Economic sectors

Industry

The traditional farming sector thrives alongside other more recently introduced industries, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, metals, pottery, wind power, etc. This increases the levels of employment and investment in this sector.

The areas of industrial development include the Baix Ebre Industrial Estate, which is almost 100% occupied, as well as the recently founded Catalunya Sud Industrial Estate, which has industrial land available.

There is also the Pla de l’Estació Industrial Estate, which is shared between the towns of Tortosa and Roquetes.

The industrial sector accounts for 20% of the town’s economy, in line with the average across Catalonia.

Services

Tortosa is the nerve centre of the Terres de l'Ebre region, with the town gaining a significant status as capital, along with a considerable increase in the service sector.

The service sector accounts for 72% of the town's economy, therefore outweighing all of the other economic sectors.

Central market



A clear indicator of the town's commercial dynamism can be found in the Art Nouveau building of the Central Market.


Agriculture

Agriculture accounts for 3.5% of the municipal economy, which may sound low but is three times the average level of agriculture in Catalonia as a whole, reflecting the importance of this sector in the region in relation to the rest of Catalonia.

The agricultural structure is predominated by plantations of olive trees, citrus fruit and vegetables, as well as the traditional crop and livestock farming industry (oils, fodder, eggs, etc.).
