“Spain has vast expertise to exchange with India”

The Foundation’s Chairman, Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, welcomes the Leaders to Acciona offices

Acciona’s VP and Chairman of the Spain India Council Foundation, Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, welcomed the Leaders to the company’s offices together with the Head of Business Development, Manuel Manjón.

The Foundation’s Chairman welcomed the Leaders in the name of all SICF’s patron companies and institutions and reminded the participants in the Programme that Spain has outstanding infrastructure companies, as well as universities and business schools which are not well known in India but have increased their capacities and competitiveness over the past few decades.

In the case of water management, this increased capacity is due to the fact that European legislation has boosted investments in water management and desalination in the past few years. This has allowed Spain to accumulate “vast expertise to exchange, not only at a corporate level, but also at a government level.”

In India, Acciona has offices in several regions. In the water business, however, the company’s main activity is in the Americas, the Middle East and the North of Africa. “Over the past few years we have tried to understand the market in India, and we are still trying.” According to Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, the country has “many great companies” in terms of conventional water management, “but when it comes to large desalination projects, we can offer a lot of added value.”

Afterwards, the Leaders were treated to an informal lunch organised by Acciona and were joined by other patrons of the Spain India Council Foundation.
