United States is a Constitutional, Presidential and Federal Republic (50 States and the District of Colombia) with a bicameral legislative system; Senate (100), and House of Representatives (435). The system of government is a presidential democracy with presidential elections every 4 years that are attended by the Republican and Democratic parties and other parties.


At the economic level, the United States imports mainly from the countries of the Pacific basin (37.0% of the total), and Canada and Mexico (North America), which reach a quota of 26.1% between the two. Observing the evolution of the last years, the most significant change from the point of view of the suppliers of the United States is carried out by China, which has gone from being the fourth country in importance with a share of 8.2% in 2000 to the first with a 21.1% share in 2016. Japan has been the major handicap of the increase in importance of China, losing share to reach 6.0% in 2016, ranking behind China, Mexico and Canada.


The bilateral relations of Spain with the United States date back to the very moment of the birth of the new American nation, at the end of the 18th century. Spain contributed in a remarkable way to the independence of the Thirteen Colonies of the British Empire. The establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Spain occurred in 1785, just two years after full American independence.


The Hon. Mr. Pedro Morenés Eulate, Ambassador of Spain to the United States, will present the current situation and the country's relations with Spain, both commercially and diplomatically.
