21st Century Diplomacy
Technological development has contributed to the emergence and consolidation of new communication channels between citizens and Public Administrations, such as the Internet and social networks. It is estimated that in Spain, 22 million users have active profiles in one or several social networks in which they spend, on average, 1 hour and 54 minutes a day. Intense work has been carried out in recent years to increase efficiency and transparency and facilitate connection and dialogue with citizens through social networks and the internet.
  • Public Diplomacy

    The Directorate-General for Communication and Diplomatic Information is responsible for the public and digital diplomacy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.

  • Economic Diplomacy
    Against the current international backdrop, economic diplomacy is one of the main instruments of Spanish foreign policy and a political priority to enhance the economic recovery and improve the image of Spain abroad.
  • Cultural Projection
    Cultural policies play a crucial role in the development of Spain's foreign policy, which is favoured by the cultural and artistic richness of our country and by a language that is second on the lists of languages by number of native speakers and which is subject to a growing learning demand.
  • Attention to the citizen and digital Diplomacy
    As part of its commitment to modernise communications and adapt its services to the demands of modern-day society, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation implemented a Digital Diplomacy Plan in 2015, which is now fully operational.
  • Think Tanks

    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation collaborates, within the scope of foreign policy, with Spanish and foreign Think Tanks with a triple focus on thought management, public diplomacy and the spread of the work of Spanish Think Tanks.

  • Media relations
    The Directorate-General for Diplomatic Communication and Information is the official spokesperson's unit of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, and is in charge of disseminating information on Spain's foreign policy and the activities it carries out.
  • Science, Technology and Innovation Diplomacy
    In a world undergoing constant changes, where new global challenges affect all countries, Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) are the engines of social and economic progress and drivers of globalization, and participate in the reconfiguration of the future world. In addition, its growing influence in all social areas and, especially, in international relations, gives the Scientific, Technological and Innovation Diplomacy a growing importance that contributes to the strengthening of the international presence of a country and its image in the world.
