This week the Chamber, led by its president, Zulema Aragones Monjas, celebrated its annual Christmas party at the Official Residence of Canada hosted by the Honorable Ambassador of Canada to Spain, Wendy Drukier, accompanied by the Trade Commissioner Service, including Senior Trade Commissioner, Mazen Mahfouz and members of the Trade Commissioners Team, Yves Belliveau, Nadia Rego Monteil, Chrystelle Carrillo and Eugenia Pérez Peña. Alfons Calderón attended in representation of the Bureau du Québec à Barcelone (BQB).
It was a special occasion for members to gather, network with new and old friends, and all were fortunate to enjoy a nice afternoon outdoors with sunshine in Madrid (17ºC) in December!
We want to thank all of the members for joining us, as we celebrated the start of the holiday season, and as we toasted to the year to come.
