Ambassador of the 2019 edition

Arantxa Tapia Otaegi
Basque Minister for Economic Development & Infrastructures

I am in charge of the Basque Government’s Department for Economic Development & Infrastructures which covers Industry, innovation, agriculture and fishing. All of these areas directly impact the Basque Country’s productive economy.

We have risen to the challenge of organising all the productive sectors so as to facilitate development, based on internal collaboration and a common goal, which generates synergies, creating wealth and jobs, and also optimising the government’s resources, like, for example, reducing senior positions by 20%.

We are looking to overcome the economic crisis by promoting a New Model for Competitiveness suited to both our abilities, and the needs and aspirations of Basque society.
