Macri Invites Spanish Businesses to Invest in Argentina

MADRID – Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri called on Wednesday for Spanish businesses to deepen their participation in his country, while speaking to the Spanish Congress during a state visit.

Macri spoke of the strong ties between the two countries and said a new stage was beginning in which growth would be promoted.

“Together we will find better opportunities,” he said during the solemn act, adding that both countries had a leading role in restarting the negotiations between Mercosur – a South American economic bloc made up of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela – and the European Union.

A ratified deal between the blocs has been perpetually delayed for years.

Macri said Argentina wanted to live more calmly and develop values like dialogue and tolerance, as well as be a part of the world, which he expected would bring years of growth.

He said he was there to highlight the long history of affection that Argentina had for Spain.

“Our past unites us, but also our future,” he said.

The President of the Spanish Congress, Ana Pastor, insisted that the two nations were connected by special ties and said Argentina had in Spain a defender in negotiations with the EU.

“In Argentina, Spain has a sister nation, a land of welcome and the home of so many compatriots,” she said, referring to the many Spanish migrants in the Latin American country.

Macri was received in Congress by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, Ana Pastor, and President of the Senate Pio Garcia Escudero.

This was the first day of his state visit to Spain, which began with an official reception by King Felipe VI and Queen Leticia, with whom he is to dine Wednesday evening.

On Thursday, the Argentinian leader is scheduled to meet with Rajoy and visit the contemporary art fair in Madrid (ARCO 2017), before meeting with Peruvian-Spanish Nobel Prize for Literature winner Mario Vargas Llosa.
