Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Korea (ESCCK)

Remarks on occasion of the 2018 General Assembly of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Korea:

It is an honor for me to open the annual meeting of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce one more year.

First of all, I would like to thank our Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Gonzalo Ortiz Díez, for his unconditional support and the affection that he has shown to this project and to all of us.  On the other hand, I would like to welcome Mr. Antonio Estévez, Economic and Commercial Counsellor at our Embassy, who attends the Chamber’s annual meeting for the first time. I would also like to thank our new members for your confidence in us and of course to all those who have been doing so for years.

2018 is a year to shore up the project and look at the future with energy and optimism regarding the challenges and opportunities that are before us; giving life to a single project, and promoting a positive image of Spain in Korea, as well as of our people and companies.

The Chamber is still young, even though we have been able to gain a position as one of the most active chambers in Korea and to get us known within and outside the country. It is important to stop for a few seconds and put into perspective what we have accomplished these years, and everything that means for our future, and the future of our countries. We have to celebrate not only the achievement of our goals but also the effort and affection that we have put in the Chamber.

To conclude, I would like to congratulate our Secretary General, Mr. Roger Royo, and all our team for their work and dedication, which deserve recognition from our part.

Best regards, and happy year of the dog.


Ernest Ribas

President ESCCK.
