Represented exclusively by Thinking Heads

Felipe González, the longest-standing Spanish President with fourteen years in office, is a sought-after speaker worldwide. Two of the cornerstones of his policy were the integration of Spain in the European Union and the European relationships with Latin America, an aspiration in which he was a pioneer. González fostered and strengthened this relationship opening new fields of cooperation and laying the groundwork for today’s mutual collaboration.

“There can be markets without democracy, but it is impossible to have democracy without markets”

His time in office was also defined by very significant reforms such as the installment of free Public Education, making a university education more accessible to all and the establishment of a wide-ranging Social Security system including Universal Healthcare. In addition he carried out a major industrial refurbishment plan as well as an army reform towards full professionalism.
