The Spain-India Council Foundation is now approaching three years of existence and continues to respond to the need to create, also for India, a platform of civil society made up of business companies, financial institutions, cultural agents, Universities, Business Schools, lawyers and consultants. They are all, all of us, interested in fostering relations between Spain and India in collaboration with the Public Administrations.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation coordinates and promotes this initiative as part of the network of Foundations that the Ministry has established with many of the major countries with which Spain has a special relationship. India could not miss in this scheme. Thus, we have understood the promoters of this initiative, that in just three years of life, leads public-private collaboration to benefit the interests of all those who want to see our relationship placed where it deserves.
We propose this project as a long-term investment between two ancient countries but young at the present stage. The opportunities offered by India in a wide range of sectors is enormous, and our patrons know that neither we nor can we afford to lose the opportunity that opens the current political and economic conditions of the globalized world of the XXI century.
This initiative is undertaking a wide range of activities launched by the Foundation, that also supports the most important official events. We support, as well, initiatives of organizations that have in common with us their interest in India. I am thus thankful to all who have joined the Foundation for their confidence and to those who, from outside, lend us their cooperation.
