Spain's Pau Roca, new Director General of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine

​Pau Roca, Secretary General of the Spanish Wine Federation, was appointed last Friday 23 November as the new Director General of the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) for the 2019-2023 term. The Spanish nomination has been jointly promoted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation.

26/11/2018

The vote was held at the General Assembly of the organisation in Punta del Este (Uruguay). Pau Roca was supported by 40 out of 47 countries which constitute the OIV and received 115.8 votes out of a total of 141.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation congratulates the new Director General on this designation, which is a result of the great joint work of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and this Ministry through its network of embassies abroad, carried out this year to obtain the maximum international recognition of the capacity and competence of the Spanish candidate.

The designation of Pau Roca as new Director General enhances the growing presence of Spanish citizens in International Organisations and is a first-class recognition of the relevance of the Spanish viticulture.
