The Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg has held this Tuesday, 13th December, an Extraordinary General Assembly.
The meeting had only one item on the agenda: the approval of the proposed new statutes, adapted to the new Spanish Royal Decree 1179/2020, which establishes the framework for the official recognition of the Spanish Chambers of Commerce abroad, as well as to the renewed Belgian Code of Companies and Associations.
After the introduction of the president of the Chamber, Pablo López, the secretary general, Marta González, summarised the general lines of the reform to adapt the statutes to the new legislation.
The members of the Chamber unanimously approved the proposal, although the decision is conditional upon the subsequent approval of the Secretary of State for Trade of the Spanish Government.
The Assembly was also attended by the Spanish Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium, Alberto Antón, who highlighted the work of the Chamber in strengthening trade relations between Spain, Belgium, and Luxembourg.
Prior to the event, a minute of silence was also held in honor of José Gracia Barba, “Pitu”, member of the Board of Directors of the Chamber who passed away recently.
At the end of the Assembly, the Chamber’s Christmas Cocktail took place, where the members could enjoy appetizers and drinks, as well as the opportunity for networking.
