Within the framework of the inauguration of CABEI's Representative Office in Madrid, the Executive President of the multilateral organization met with representatives of the Alliance for Iberoamerica Business Council.

Madrid, February 14th, 2023 - Reaffirming its role as the bridge of opportunities between the region and the world, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) held a meeting with Núria Vilanova, President of the Alliance for Iberoamerica Business Council (CEAPI), and an important delegation of its members to encourage investment and open doors to new businesses in the Central American region.

CABEI's Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi, stressed the importance of strengthening relations with strategic allies and that CABEI is intended as a cooperation tool to increase business opportunities.

Accompanied by CABEI Director for Spain, Jorge Mariné Brandi, and CABEI officials, Mossi commented that "this opportunity is conducive to promoting opportunities in both directions to take greater advantage of the technical resources, knowledge, and extensive experience in project development by the companies that make up CEAPI, as well as their participation in activities promoted by the Bank in the countries of the region.”

For Núria Vilanova, president of CEAPI, "Spain is becoming the main point of investment for multi-Iberoamerican companies. In our country we are sure that Latin America is a necessary space for raw materials, geographic bonus and nearshoring, among many other advantages. This is a reality that invites us to continue working to strengthen ties with a strategic territory such as Central America, a task for which the new CABEI office in Spain will be a fundamental tool.”

During the strategic dialogue, which took place within the framework of the inauguration of the CABEI Representative Office in Madrid, topics of interest such as trade, logistics, technology, services, and transportation were discussed, as well as the sectors in which there is a need to seek areas of mutual support for greater development.

It is worth noting that CEAPI, a business council made up of more than 220 presidents of the largest Iberoamerican companies that are committed to strengthening the network of relations and the business space, organizes the annual Iberoamerican Congress, in which distinguished personalities from both Europe and Latin America participate. This year the association celebrates the sixth edition of its congress, which will take place between May 30th and June 1st at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, and will bring together more than 300 presidents of the main multi-Iberoamerican companies with investments on both sides of the Atlantic, to address business relations between Latin America and the European Union, on the occasion of the Spanish Presidency of the EU during the second half of 2023.
