The participants meet with SICF’s Secretary General, Carlos Morales
The Secretary General of the Spain-India Council Foundation, Carlos Morales, officially inaugurated the 7th edition of the Indian Leaders Programme and met with the participants to welcome them and explain the structure and purpose of the Foundation, the programme’s goals and the agenda for the following days.
The Secretary General explained that the Foundation, which is now celebrating its 10th anniversary, has been “working hard to strengthen ties between the two countries” and that the Leaders Programme is one of the Foundation’s most important activities towards this goal.
“We hope they can get to know what we do in Spain and have the chance to make contacts, learn about Spain’s situation and become our ambassadors once they are back in India, connecting with us in this sense,” he said.
Morales also gave a summary of the programme’s agenda, with events to be held in Madrid, Valladolid and Barcelona on this occasion. “We have a hectic agenda and will be visiting three cities in five days, but I hope this will give participants a general overview of the country, its public institutions, research centres, administrations, academia, private institutions, companies and so on. We will have the chance to talk to all of them and answer any questions that participants might have.”
