Commerce and districts
District Commerce Plans
The 2014-2017 Commerce Plans for each of the Districts present their existing commercial reality, the municipal policies' action proposals and the retailers' private initiatives, with the aim of reaching an agreement on and sharing a strategic and co-responsible vision of local commerce over the coming years.
They are based on the District Municipal Action Plans (PAD)and the Barcelona Plan for Promoting and Supporting Commerce.
They were prepared with active participation from retailers' associations, commercial hubs and representatives from the District's Commerce Councils.
These documents are intended to be especially useful for retailers' organisations and to provide them with a global vision of all the elements that may influence the dynamics of commerce and help with the planning and management of their short- and mid-term commercial strategies.
The document is also intended as a guide for the various areas of the district and city's municipal action, with most municipal policies having a direct or indirect effect on the world of commerce.
The fact that commerce is taken into account in this cross-cutting approach ensures the strengthening of the economic activity of this sector and its cohesive effects in local neighbourhoods.
