Spain-India: huge opportunities in infrastructure and transport

Meeting at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, where they were told about the presence in India of Spanish companies

The next event on the Indian Leaders’ schedule in Madrid was a meeting at the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, where they discussed the opportunities for Spain and India to work together in the field of infrastructure and transport. As well as the group of MPs from the SICF delegation, the event was attended by José María Pérez Rosado, Advisor to the Cabinet of the Secretary of State for Infrastructure, Transport and Housing; Fernando Nicolás, international director at Adif; Jesús Izarzugaza, Counsellor to the Minister of Public Works and Transport; and Esperanza Ruiz de Velasco, Secretary General for Infrastructure.

The meeting began with a presentation by José María Pérez Rosado, who explained the importance of the Spanish transport infrastructure system. He highlighted the high-speed rail network, which is the second largest in the world, beaten only by China, and the motorway network, which is among the most extensive in Europe. He also spoke about the conventional rail network, which is crucial for passenger and freight transportation, Spain’s air transport system, which boasts 47 airports with Madrid and Barcelona at the forefront, and the performance of its maritime transport thanks to a blend of technology and strategic geographic positioning.

The advisor to the Cabinet of the Secretary of State gave the example of Council Foundation Patrons such as Isolux and the LKS projects. Fernando Nicolás, international director at Adif, remarked on the close relationship between his company and Indian Railways following the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2012, which will regulate Adif’s entry into the consortium charged with launching India’s high-speed line from Mumbai to Kolkata.
