The Council Foundation’s mission is to encompass the efforts made by the various sectors of the Spanish economy under a civil society platform to support the interests, concerns and wishes of all activity concerning India.
This initiative is fully in line with India’s importance as one of the main world powers in the 21st Century. Furthermore, India is one of the countries considered as essential in the broader framework of priorities for Spanish foreign affairs policy with Asia and the Pacific.
Spain wishes to convert its positive political relations with India in all areas into a way to foster bilateral economic relations (the tourism, energy, sports, culture, law, universities and business schools, infrastructures sectors etc.), including the technology and science sectors, and increase awareness of the ‘Spain Brand’ in India.
The foundation also promotes initiatives, contacts and actions considered as priorities by the trustees who represent the broad spectrum of public and private activity, for which a coordinated and coherent focus is needed capable of combining efforts and bringing people together on common goals.
Constant and evident institutional support is fundamental to the Spain-India Council Foundation, which has been provided for every activity promoted to date. Ministers from various departments, state-secretaries, members of the Royal Household, ambassadors and other officials have supported and taken part in the development of actions proposed by the foundation, bringing incalculable added value to the results.
