Just two years in the past it could have been interpreted by some CEOE chairs as an affront. But the hidden struggle between Antonio Garamendi and Josep Sánchez Llibre now appears to be on maintain and this Tuesday the top of the Spanish employers' management may have a number one position within the official touchdown of Foment del Treball in Madrid. Another proof of how each employer leaders have determined to bury the hatchet, after Garamendi's problem-free victory within the November 2022 elections, made seen final June with the hug between the 2 after the CEOE president acquired his assist to vary the statutes of the group and thus be capable of compete for the three mandates.

That is the employer framework wherein Foment opens its domicile in Madrid by way of the Barcelona Society of Economic and Social Studies, a centenary entity of the Catalan employers' affiliation that lately had survived in lethargy.

But its position goals to go additional: society -the identify by which it’s identified on the Foment headquarters- desires to vary insurance policies within the Cortes and has employed as director the previous director of labor relations at CEOE between 2014 and 2019, Jordi García Viña. From Barcelona, ​​the Catalan employers' affiliation will even preserve Toni Picó, one other former member of Unió within the affiliation, as its particular person accountable for relations with the Cortes.

The debate shall be opened by the model new CEO of Criteria Caixa, Ángel Simón, who can be the president of the group's board of sponsors.

The premiere arrives a lot later than initially deliberate. The preliminary plans set the opening ceremony final September. But Sánchez Llibre has been out of motion for a couple of months on account of hip surgical procedure after which the entire investiture debate hit the Society, which has made his debut in Madrid unattainable till now. The curiosity of Barcelona entities in being within the Spanish capital has skyrocketed lately. Foment's Catalan rival, Pimec, can be attempting to realize prominence with the signing of former PDeCAT deputy Ferran Bel as a delegate. And many corporations with historic headquarters in Barcelona have been transferring a few of their occasions to the Spanish capital, whether or not it’s CaixaFinancial institution presenting its strategic plan there or Naturgy its newest main company operation Geminis, the spin-off of its companies.
