SPAIN CELEBRATES NATIONAL DAY
10/11/2017
His Excellency Josep Bosch and his wife, Mrs. Teresa González, welcomed over two hundred guests from a wide cross section of the Jamaican society including representatives of both the private and public sectors, the diplomatic community and Spanish nationals resident in Jamaica at the official Residence on October 11 to help celebrate the National Day of Spain.
 
Spain observes its National Day on the 12th of October, a day referred to as ”El Día de la Hispanidad” (the day of Hispanic brotherhood) as it celebrates the bonds of friendship, and historic and cultural links binding the Hispanic world.
In their respective toasts, Minister of Justice, the Honourable Delroy Chuck, representing the Government of Jamaica, and Ambassador Bosch, highlighted the excellent relations that exist between Jamaica and Spain as well as both countries’ continued partnerships across various sectors.
Spain established its Embassy in the island forty years ago.
Consistent with the theme of “Hispanity”, featured performers, Latin American and Caribbean group Harmony, delighted the gathering with dances and music from various Hispanic countries beginning with flamenco from Spain and transporting the audience to Panama, Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Chile, to name a few.  The group’s apt finale included traditional folk dance and dancehall from Jamaica reinforcing Ambassador Bosch’s call for Jamaica to “feel a part of the Iberoamerican Community celebration”.
The event was catered by Melia Braco Village and received sponsorship from Spanish companies with current operations in the island – Iberostar, RIU, H-10, Excellence, Bahia Principe and Grand Palladium.
