The Republic of India, in Hindi Bhārat Ganarājya, is the seventh largest country in the world. Its surface is six times bigger than the Spanish one.


It’s expected that its population, today of 1,340 million inhabitants, will soon reach that of China, 1,379 million, and it will be the most populated country in the world. Until 1991 the successive governments applied a policy of centralized planning and substitution of imports.


Since then, successive reforms have profoundly transformed the country's economy. Although it still faces great challenges, the Indian economy now has one of the highest growth rates in the world and is now the 6th largest in the world.


The political life after the independence has been dominated in its majority by the Party of the Congress, under the historical leadership of the Nehru-Gandhi family, until 1977, when for the first time it lost elections. Since the nineties, the Popular Party of India (Bharatiya Janata Party, BJP), a Hindu conservative party, has been gaining weight.


India ranks 36th as a destination for Spanish exports and is the 19th largest supplier in our country. Among the countries of the EU, Spain is the 7th exporter to India and the 7th importer of Indian products.


The valuation of Spain in India, in terms of its specific weight in economic and technological matters, has improved considerably in recent years, especially in areas such as infrastructure and renewable energies.


In relation to its foreign policy, one of the main novelties, since the arrival of the BJP party to the government, has been the intensification and diversification of India's foreign relations. The current government seeks the recognition of India as a global power of the first order.


Diplomatic relations between Spain and India began in 1956. Spain created in 1958 a resident embassy in New Delhi. As a result of Prime Minister Modi's trip to Spain in May 2017, both countries approved a joint document under the title "Association for peace, growth and innovation between Spain and India".


The Hon. Mr. José Ramón Barañano, Ambassador of Spain to India, will present the current situation and the relations of the country with Spain, at a commercial and diplomatic level.
