India, a strategic country within the Cervantes Institute’s international expansion plan

The New Delhi centre has become the Institute’s largest centre worldwide

India is a fundamental location within the Cervantes Institute’s international expansion strategy. The Institute’s New Delhi centre is now the Cervantes Institute’s top centre worldwide by number of students. The delegation from the SICF was welcomed by Rafael Rodríguez-Ponga, the Institute’s Secretary General, and Eduardo Sánchez Moreno, Head of Analysis and Strategy. The Secretary General gave an overview of the role and the importance of the Cervantes Institute: “It is the top global institution for the promotion of Spanish”. He also explained that it is not focused solely on Spain, but on a far more extensive community, which encompasses over 400 million Spanish speakers and centres in more than 90 cities. 

As for the importance of India in its internationalisation strategy, Rodríguez-Ponga said the Institute was looking into opening more centres in the country, because although the New Delhi centre coordinates activities and exams for the whole country, it is not enough to consolidate the Institute’s expansion, as “there is huge demand”. After the meeting, the Indian Leaders visited the Box of Letters (Caja de las Letras), which was the vault of the bank that previously occupied the building, and is currently used to conserve legacies left by some of the greats of Hispanic culture, which will be opened on a date determined by the artists themselves.
