For the City Council for Economy, Employment and Entrepreneurship, Ricardo Valente, "the arrival of a company such as Volkswagen Digital Solutions in Porto and in an office space in the city center is a demonstration of the results of an investment attraction strategy that not only adds economic value to the city, but also induces occupational multifunctionality even in the city center."

It started with 20 workers, who were already working in a hybrid regime from the north of the country, and who "were able to choose to move to the new location and kick off in the city of Porto". But recruitment is continuing.
