On 26 May 2011 a group of Spain’s leading issuers, investors and intermediaries gathered in Madrid for the 5th installment of Euromoney’s Spanish Capital Markets Forum. Following the success of the four previous years, the forum once again provided a unique platform to discuss the key issues affecting the Spanish capital markets.
With the recent upheaval in Spain’s public sector, and demonstrators occupying the city centre while the forum took place, there was much to discuss. The latest events in Spain have provoked many questions about the stability of Spain’s financial system, some of which this forum attempted to answer.
The conference was opened by Soledad Núñez, Director General, Treasury and Financial Policy at the Ministry of Economy. Ms Núñez discussed how Spain plans to overcome the recent troubles and achieve balanced and sustained growth in the near future. This was followed with an address from Antonio Hernández Garcia, Director General of Energy and Mining Policy at the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade, who discussed the prospect of economic growth through investment in the energy sector. These presentations were followed by a series of lively panels and workshops which covered topics from consolidating the cajas to redefining the ratings.
Held at just the right time of year, this forum provided delegates and speakers with much-needed answers and proved that many issues remain to be resolved. Euromoney would like to give a special thanks to all our sponsors, speakers and delegates for making this event such a success, and we hope you will join us again in 2012 for further debate.
