The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Diaz Ayuso, has started her journey in the United States, where she seeks to “strengthen the image of the region as a magnet for companies and projects”.
Thus, he will explain the weak fiscal policies that he has been implementing for 17 years, and at the same time, he will defend the legacy of Spain in America against the “black myth” and the “Manichean revision of history” . He tries to achieve this with the “alarming” growth of autochthony and populism.
As reported by the regional government in a statement, the president of Madrid, during a press conference in New York, explained the three aspects of her institutional journey: the economic, political and cultural aspect.
Tomorrow he will meet various investment funds such as Blackrock or Torino Capital, to which he will also transfer the “quality of life” located in Madrid, with “first-rate education and health, with very good infrastructure, the second most great life expectancy and full of opportunities â.
Ayuso wants to restore the level of North American investments which in just three years have gone from an estimate of 1,700 million euros to 324 million. To do this, you want to take advantage of the figures that accompany Madrid precisely in this area, because it is the Spanish region with the highest GDP, contributing 20% âânationally or concentrating 70% of foreign investments.
Strengthening links with institutions
From a political point of view, the objective is to continue to “strengthen relations” with the institutions, which will explain the management of the epidemic which has occurred for a year and a half. In this sense, it will hold meetings with the Council of the Americas, the American World Organization or the Inter-American Development Bank.
As for Spain’s heritage in America, the Madrid leader stressed that she wanted to deny Madrid “more than ever from Hispanidad”, as well as attract the talents of students and audiovisual producers to develop their projects in the region.
In this context, he will also hold his meeting with the Hispanic bloc in the US Congress. “There is a populist movement across the continent in the opposite direction at the hands of some leaders who bring more conflict, poverty and tyranny against the Spaniards, assimilation and generational inequality,” the president said.
