The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Spain, José Manuel García-Margallo, will visit Brazil from June 17 to 19, 2015, with agenda in Brasília, São Paulo and Salvador.

On June 17, in Brasília, he will meet with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Mauro Vieira, in the context of the Second Meeting of the Brazil-Spain Ministerial Committee on Political Dialogue. The Ministers will address themes of the bilateral agenda, such as trade, investments and cooperation in education, science and technology. Regional and multilateral issues of mutual interest, such as humanitarian cooperation and the work of both countries in the UN Peacekeeping Operations in Haiti and Lebanon, have also been discussed.

Brazil and Spain are important economic partners. Brazil has the second largest stock of Spanish direct investment in the world, and Spain is the third largest foreign investor in Brazil. In 2014, bilateral trade reached USD 7,16 billion. In April 2015, on the occasion of Vice-President Michel Temer visit to Madrid, Brazil and Spain aimed at doubling the trade volume and reciprocal investments by 2025.

The Brazil-Spain joint effort in the field of humanitarian cooperation is noteworthy. Since 2011, with Spanish financial support on transport and distribution, Brazil donated approximately 50 thousand tons of food (rice, beans and corn) to countries in Africa and Central America. Recently, with the support from the World Food Programme (WFP), the two countries established a partnership for the donation, by Brazil, of 1,080 tons of beans and 450 tons of rice to the Saharawi population in the refugee camps in Tindouf, Algeria.
