“Ribera Salud is the only Spanish company which participated in the 18th Annual Conference of the International Economic Forum of the Americas, which took place in Montreal”, this was the title of the press release published some days ago.
Apart from being the only Spanish Company in this important forum, I feel very proud of the high level of the participants: Alan Greenspan, Former Chairman from Federal Reserve (FED) (United States); Christian Noyer, Governor from Bank of France, and Chairman from Bank for International Settlements (BIS); Luis Alberto Moreno, President of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB); Mark Zandi, Chief Economist from Moody’s Analytic’s; Haruiko Kuroda, President of the Asian Development Bank; Jose Miguel Insulza, Secretary General, Organization of American States (OAS) or Sri Mulyani Indrawati, World Bank Manager, amongst others….
I started my lecture mentioning that in these difficult moments where all the discussions and debates in the international organizations are focused on the Spanish economic situation, I wanted to participate in this forum contributing a new vision of an innovative, modern, and pioneering Spain, which proposes different options of collaboration in the healthcare model sustainability, which is a real problem not only in Spain but in the rest of the world.
I consider that the Spanish companies are not only competitive but also leaders in their sectors worldwide. Companies such as Zara, Banco Santander, Mercadona, El Corte Inglés, Iberdrola… (just to mention a few). But I believe it’s necessary to realize within the healthcare sector, that we have an experience and know-how extraordinarily useful in the international context.
Ribera Salud constantly repeats, that we must value the Spanish healthcare model, and particularly the Alzira Model, as a milestone in bad times.
To the other experiences such as Montreal, London, Manchester or Amsterdam, we’ll join our presence in Lima (Perú), taking part in the Capital Projects & Infrastructure Summit, or the Korea Health Congress, or the International Congress of Healthcare Managers in Mexico in the coming months.
