Ibero-American General Secretariat – Election of Ms. Rebeca Grynspan (April 1, 2014)


France welcomes the unanimous election of Ms. Rebeca Grynspan, former Vice President of the Republic of Costa Rica, as head of the Ibero-American General Secretariat.

This international organization, with which France has had associate observer status since 2010, brings together all of the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula.France is closely involved with its work and participates in the Ibero-American summitsthat take place every year.

We wish Ms. Grynspan every success and pay tribute to the action of her predecessor, Mr. Enrique Iglesias, who worked hard to build closer links between France, the Ibero-American Conference and the Ibero-American General Secretariat.
