The Honorable Rick Perry will be among a host of business executives and Texas leadership welcoming U.S. Ambassador to Spain Eduardo Aguirre to Dallas on Monday, May 12, 2008 at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel hosted by the Greater Dallas Chamber.
“We are pleased to welcome the Governor and the Ambassador to the Dallas region for this important event,” said Victor Almeida, chair of the Greater Dallas Chamber’s International Business Council (IBC) and CEO of Interceramic Inc. “The Chamber has a long history of working to recruit inward investment and trade development opportunities to North Texas. This is an excellent opportunity for Dallas-area businesses to connect with Spanish companies without crossing the Atlantic,” continued Almeida.
In four years time, Spain has quadrupled its investments in the United States. Spain is now focusing its attention on the North Texas region. The Honorable Eduardo Aguirre, U.S. Ambassador to Spain and the American Chamber of Commerce in Spain will lead this U.S.-Spain development mission to the State of Texas to promote Spanish investment in Texas and develop joint ventures and technology exchanges with key Texas cities. This mission includes 20 Spanish companies from the following sectors: life sciences, aviation technologies, food and wine products, and sustainable technologies including renewable energies, water treatment and industrial manufacturing.
The reception hosted by the Chamber’s International Business Council will feature remarks by Governor Perry and Ambassador Aguirre. The new Consul General of Spain in Houston, Ambassador Miguel A. Fernández de Mazarambroz and the Honorary Consul of Spain in Dallas Janet Kafka will also attend.
The reception will offer a space for networking and business development between delegates and DFW companies.
The event will be held at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel (400 Crescent Court, Dallas, TX, 75201) from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM and is open to the general public. The cost to attend is $20 for International Business Council Investors, $25 for Chamber Members, and $35 for general admission.
