Spain’s Industry Minister Meets with Spanish Executives in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Spain’s minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto, met on Thursday with senior executives from some of the largest Spanish companies operating in Argentina.

The lunch meeting, which took place at the residence of the Spanish ambassador in Buenos Aires, Francisco Javier Sandomingo, was attended by top executives from Banco Santander Rio, Telefonica, Naturgy, Dycasa, Pescanova, Codere, Constructora San Jose, Idom, Mapfre, CAF, and Dia.

Maroto said that the government of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez is closely following the economic situation in Argentina amid a massive fall in the value of the peso.

“Our two countries have a close relationship,” the minister said, who is visiting Argentina to attend the G20 Trade and Investment Ministerial Meeting in the resort city of Mar del Plata on Friday.

Maroto said that during a meeting earlier Thursday with Argentine Tourism Secretary Gustavo Santos, she was able to address “common projects” that unite the two countries “to work together during the next few months and strengthen our alliance.”

“Our position in these meetings, since we are sister countries, is to work together to strengthen our trade connections, our common projects, and to take advantage of those links to create wealth and employment,” she said.

In Mar del Plata, Maroto is expected to not only attend the ministerial meeting but also to hold bilateral talks with her counterparts from Canada, Japan, China, Australia and India.

“We must strengthen our trade ties with these countries and make trade policy one of the cornerstones of the Spanish government,” Maroto said.
