Minister for Foreign Affairs meets with young Hispanic leaders from the United States
11/17/2016


The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Alfonso Dastis, held a working breakfast at the ministerial department headquarters in Viana Palace on Thursday, 17 November, with young Hispanic leaders on a visit to Spain between 13 and 19 November within the framework of the 17th edition of the programme of Hispanic leaders of the Carolina Foundation.

On this occasion, the Carolina Foundation invited 10 young US nationals whose mother tongue is Spanish and have excelled in fields of politics, economics, administration, art, culture or in the social and academic world, with the aim of facilitating the creation of a network of contacts with their Spanish counterparts.

In his speech, the minister highlighted the importance of relations between Spain and the United States and stressed the government’s intention to step up this type of meeting in the coming years to the young Hispanics, as well as ties with the Hispanic communities in the United States and extend them to other areas with a view to improving and extending our relations with their country. Within this framework, the minister recalled that the Hispanic dimension of our relations with the United States is essential because it is the community that Spain is most familiar with and the most opportune to get to know more about the great North American nation.

The minister recalled the rich historical and cultural legacy left by three centuries of Spanish presence in two-thirds of the current territory of the United States and highlighted the key role played by General Bernardo de Gálvez in the United States gaining independence, which should not be forgotten. In this regard, the minister urged these Hispanic leaders to help spread the tale of our common history, our rich legacy and Spain’s interest in their country and their community.
