SICF participates in a private meeting with Narendra Modi

The Embassy of India in Spain organised a meeting between the Prime Minister and a small group of Spanish entrepreneurs

During his recent visit to Spain, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with a small group of Spanish entrepreneurs. The Spain India Council Foundation was invited to the event and was represented by its Secretary General, Alonso Dezcallar.

The meeting was also attended by SICF patrons Indra, Acciona, LaCaixa, Banco Santander and Navantia, as well as the Chamber of Commerce of Spain, Airbus, Gamesa, CAF, Talgo, Abengoa, the Spanish Confederation of Business Associations (CEOE)and Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura.

Attendees had the chance to give a brief presentation on their companies and their interests in India, followed by a speech by the Prime Minister.

During the meeting, Narendra Modi underlined his interest in helping Spanish companies set up in India, and he invited 200 companies to travel there and discover the business opportunities in their sectors.

The presence of SICF's Secretary General in this meeting emphasised the all-important role played by the Council Foundation and its patron entities as a bridge for bilateral relations.

The Spain-India joint statement released by the governments of the two countries to mark the occasion also underscores the valuable contribution of “institutions such as the Spain India Council Foundation, which complement government initiatives aimed at strengthening the ties between the Indian and Spanish societies”.

The statement also mentions the support of the two Prime Ministers, Mariano Rajoy and Narendra Modi, for the next Spain India Forum, organised by SICF as “a platform to promote investments, business linkages and people to people contacts”.

During Modi's visit, the Spanish Government also announced the possibility of organising a Year of Spain in India in 2020.
