TECHNOLOGY businesses are being invited to Axarquia to benefit from highly-skilled graduates in the area.
A meeting took place on Monday 9 September between the Local Council of Motril and the University of Granada in an effort to encourage new technological projects in the agricultural, tourism and maritime sectors.
