OFFICIAL STATEMENT 154
State Secretariat of Global Spain has New Managing Director for its Office

​The State Secretariat for Global Spain was created on 11 October upon transforming the High Commission for ‘Spain Brand’ into a State Secretariat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and International Cooperation. The new State Secretariat, fronted by Irene Lozano, has the primary goal of improving Spain’s foreign image, as well as the planning, driving forward, coordination and monitoring of Spanish foreign actions, both public and private, in the economic, cultural, social, scientific and technological fields, aimed at promoting this image.

​The Global Spain Office reports to the State Secretariat, whose managing director, Joaquín de Arístegui Laborde, was nominated today by the Council of Ministers. A diplomat since 1992, he has held different posts, where notable ones include that of Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative for Spain at the United Nations and other international organizations based in Geneva, Spanish Ambassador in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Assistant Deputy Director of Asia Continental,  Deputy Director of Bilateral Economic Relations with Developing Countries, Spanish Consul General in Peking (China) and—since September of this year—the Spanish Consul General in Lyon (France). He was also part of Global Spain’s former project, Spain Brand, as Project Director in 2014.
