In addition to organising the Spain-Japan Forums since 1997 (with the support of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of both countries) and awarding the annual prizes bearing its name, the Foundation also promotes the activities and initiatives approved by its Board of Trustees. The Foundation is responsible for carrying out relevant institutional work and permanent representation for the benefit of the Spanish-Japanese relations.
