A group of European Union diplomats, led by the Spanish ambassador to Mexico, Juan Duarte Cuadrado, recently visited Querétaro to hold working meetings with the local business sector.
The objective of the visit was to learn about the security, culture, and investment situation in the entity and to explore possible investment opportunities.
The Spanish ambassador to Mexico, Juan Duarte Cuadrado, speaking outside the Government House, highlighted the importance of Querétaro as a place of investment for Spain.
According to Duarte Cuadrado, there are more than 60 Spanish companies installed in the Mexican territory, and Querétaro is one of the best states in the country to place investments.
“The importance of Querétaro for Spain is that we have a subsidiary of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce. Querétaro has its own chamber of commerce and here we generate many jobs. Only the Santander Group has 10,000 workers. There are many more,” the ambassador said.
Duarte Cuadrado was optimistic about the possibility that the visit of European diplomats to Querétaro translates into more and better investments in the entity.
“My goal is to make the entity better known among European countries,” he said. He also highlighted security, infrastructure, and a solid relationship with the state government as factors that make Querétaro one of the best places to invest.
The ambassador did not rule out exploring other types of commercial alliances, as in the case of the wine sector, in which Spain is a power and “some of the best wines in the country are produced in Querétaro.”
The visit of European diplomats led by the Spanish ambassador to Mexico is a clear sign of the interest of Spain and the European Union in exploring investment opportunities in Querétaro. The entity is seen as a place of great potential to invest due to its security, infrastructure, and solid relationship with the state government. The meetings between the ambassadors of the European Union and local businessmen are expected to open up new possibilities for the economic growth of the region.
