The Spanish president, Pedro Sánchez, spent eight hours in the United States without entering into domestic politics. It was in his second public act, an interview-colloquium with the Reuters news agency at the headquarters of the Instituto Cervantes in New York, when the president stated: “I define myself as a politician who complies. I like facts. I like to do. And, unfortunately, the opposition just screams. That is a big difference between the opposition and the government. We do things, we pass laws. “

The president’s phrase came at the end of the meeting, which lasted half an hour. At that time Sánchez also expressed his satisfaction with the government’s actions during the pandemic of Covid-19. “I believe that the Spaniards will appreciate and value very positively what we did in these difficult moments in our History and in the History of Humanity,” declared the president.

Sánchez’s entry into the field of national politics came on a journey that began with an interview on the MSNBC news television network. In that meeting, precisely, the President of the Government indirectly praised the Spanish opposition by recalling that unlike in the United States, in Spain vaccines have not been ideologized and that both “progressives and conservatives” are in favor of immunizing the population.

The president’s remarks came in the context of his visit to the United States. A visit that, in the words of Sánchez, aims to “represent Spain as the best place in the world to invest”. This is what the president said yesterday at the opening ceremony of the Spanish commercial office in New York (in reality, the office is still in the same building, but it has gone from the 44th to the 47th floor).

The strongest items on the president’s agenda yesterday were, first, a rtwo-hour meeting with representatives of 12 large banks and funds Americans, and then an encounter with Larry Fink, the founder, president and CEO of the world’s largest fund manager, BlackRock.

The meetings marked the closure of a long series of teleconferences that the head of the Government has held with large investors during the pandemic. The president’s interlocutors asked about the labor and housing reforms that the PSOE is negotiating with its coalition partner, Podemos, and what could have negative consequences for foreign investment. Other areas of interest were the digitization of Justice, the reform of Vocational Training, and the multilateral initiative that Spain has launched in collaboration with other countries, such as Canada and South Africa.
