Speaking at a session entitled ‘Ceuta, a place to establish technological projects’, Asensi, told the audience that the firm will be opening an office in Ceuta demonstrating its commitment to the gaming and technology companies establishing in the autonomous city.
He revealed that: “I would never have imagined that Ceuta would generate such enormous interest among companies in the sector in such a short period of time”.
