With occasion of the last release of Tribuna Norteamerica magazine, the round table “Spanish Diplomacy in the U.S.” was held on February 15, 2016 at Casa de América.

The Fundación Consejo España – EE.UU. sponsors this prestigious publication edited by Instituto Benjamin Franklin of the Universidad de Alcalá since 2014, so the Secretary General Mr. Manuel Lejarreta made some remarks on behalf of the Fundación.

After that, there was a dynamic discussion between Ambassador Inocencio Arias; Mr. Fidel Sendagorta, Director-General for North America, Asia and the Pacific of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Spain; and Mrs. Alicia Montalvo, Director General for Institutional Cooperation and Coordination of ICEX. All of them concluded that nowadays Spain has a larger presence and more weight in the U.S. in non-traditional sectors such as science and technology.
