FEDECOM renews its Board of Directors and announces new additions
The Ordinary General Assembly of the Federation of Official Spanish Chambers of Commerce in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania (FEDECOM) has unanimously approved a third term of office for President Eduardo Barrachina, who is also President of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom. Likewise, the vice presidencies of Europe, Africa and Middle East and Asia and Oceania have been elected.
For Europe, Pablo López-Alvarez was elected, who will combine the Vice-Presidency of Europe with the Presidency of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg, for Africa and Middle East, Guillermo Cobelo, President of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Arab Emirates, has been renewed in his position, and for Asia and Oceania, Iñaki Amate, President of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, has been elected.
As for the General Secretariat of the Federation, Yolanda Gimeno, Secretary General of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Italy, continues in the position.
With these appointments, the structure of three vice-presidencies takes root in order to energize FEDECOM and address the challenges that the Board of Directors has set for itself. Regarding the new Board of Directors, Eduardo Barrachina said that “it is enough to see the trajectories and profiles of the three Vice-Presidents and the Secretary General to realise that this is an extraordinary team of professionals with a wide experience in the international chamber system”.
With this new Board of Directors, Fedecom adopts a much more strategic and sophisticated position when it comes to coordinating all the initiatives in a Federation of chambers covering four continents.
Currently FEDECOM brings together 22 Official Spanish Chambers of Commerce, recognised by the Spanish State and established in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
The forthcoming opening of chambers in Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand will considerably strengthen the Federation, and will allow it to provide more services for the benefit of general Spanish interests in the country in which it is based and in the promotion of Spanish exports and investments in key markets for Spain.
