 140929_Business meeting Beijing_AriesLast Friday, September, 26th in Beijing, the Spanish Premier, Mariano Rajoy met a delegation of Spanish companies with undertakings in China at an event organized by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. Trade relationships between China and Spain are especially relevant as it is the non-European country with the highest volume of imports, third after only Germany and France. Rajoy highlighted his intention to foster these commercial exchanges and expressed his support to all the Spanish entrepreneurs, who are showing their competitiveness in a context of economical and commercial opening.

In words of Mr. Rajoy: “In addition to restore economic stability and increase competitiveness, the Government seeks to strengthen relations with the most dynamic economies in the world, and there are few that are as the Chinese. This is precisely the reason why for initiatives like this: look for new opportunities, try to increase our exchanges and, above all, avoid restrictions. Spain has a great appeal to Chinese investment. Few countries such as Spain offer good investment opportunities in such an open and competitive environment. Our country is a natural bridge to Europe, Latin America and even North Africa.”
