Cena anual del Lord Mayor con el cuerpo consular. Theme Spain

While we are not one of the largest communities in this amazingly multicultural city of Melbourne, we are definitely one which has actively and respectfully contributed to making Melbourne a richer, more creative, more colourful and energetic place. 

Like the thousands of Spaniards who arrived to Australia in the 60’s and 70’s, a new generation of young and highly skilled professionals and students from Spain are now looking for new opportunities here in Melbourne. And as it did in the past, the city is welcoming them into its open, respectful and multicultural society. 

Spaniards are present here in Melbourne on many levels including culturally and increasingly economically. The number of Spanish companies established in Australia has almost doubled in 5 years.  More than 6.000 Spanish companies are now trading here. Some of them are engaged in ambitious infrastructure projects, which will contribute to enhancing Melbourne’s reputation globally as a wonderful place (if not the best) to live. 

The relationship between Spain and Melbourne and Victoria and, with Australia more broadly, is already extremely encouraging.   However, I am sure that the best is yet to come. Melburnians, Victorians and Australians can count on Spain and our people to build together a better Melbourne and Australia for future generations.
