European cities are increasingly faced with the challenge of integrating people from very diverse backgrounds. As migrant populations increase, so do the opportunities for new business, job creation and international competitiveness. This report shows that ethnic entrepreneurs, however small their venture, contribute to the economic growth of their local area, often rejuvenate neglected crafts and trades, and participate increasingly in the provision of higher value-added services. They can help to promote stronger trading links with their home countries and foster social cohesion in their host communities. The report examines what city authorities are doing to attract ethnic entrepreneurs into their established business communities, and to facilitate the business environment – from the purely financial to providing training and advice.

    Promoción de la iniciativa empresarial de los grupos étnicos en las ciudades europeas - Resumen ejecutivo

    Autor o autores: 
    Eurofound
    Las ciudades europeas se enfrentan cada vez más a la dificultad de integrar a personas de orígenes muy diversos. El aumento de las poblaciones de inmigrantes va paralelo al de las oportunidades de establecimiento de nuevas empresas, la creación de empleo y la competitividad internacional. Este informe pone de manifiesto que los emprendedores de grupos étnicos, por muy pequeña que sea su iniciativa, contribuyen al crecimiento económico de su localidad, a menudo reavivan oficios y artesanías olvidados y participan cada vez más en la prestación de servicios de mayor valor añadido. Estos emprendedores pueden contribuir a fomentar unas relaciones comerciales más estrechas con sus países de origen y a reforzar la cohesión social en sus comunidades de acogida. En el informe se examinan las medidas que adoptan las autoridades ciudadanas para atraer a empresarios de grupos étnicos hacia sus comunidades empresariales establecidas, y para facilitar el entorno empresarial, ya sea con un planteamiento meramente económico o con la prestación de formación y asesoramiento.
