Hispanic Chamber leads San Antonio trade leaders to Spain


The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SAHCC) is conducting its annual Trade Mission to Spain, April 21-26, 2015, with a delegation from San Antonio to visit the cities of Madrid and Sevilla.  Key economic development partners on the trade mission include the Hispanic Chamber, Abengoa, the City of San Antonio, Cámara Sevilla and San Antonio Water System.

On this particular trade mission, the delegation will focus on the water technology industry’s business opportunities, which will include a signing ceremony between San Antonio Water System and Abengoa, and will signify the launch of the Vista Ridge water project. The Vista Ridge project will transport 16.3 billion gallons of new non-Edwards Aquifer yearly to San Antonio from Burleson County.

“We are looking forward to witnessing a historic signing ceremony between San Antonio Water System and Abengoa,” said Ramiro Cavazos, SAHCC President & CEO. “The Hispanic Chamber has worked very closely with both entities to ensure that we bring the best business back to San Antonio, which will boost our local workforce, and will also secure our city’s future water supply.” 

Some of the other Spain Trade Mission highlights will include a visit to the Focus Abengoa Foundation, and a U.S. Embassy reception at the residence of U.S. Ambassador James Costos.

This trade mission will have the support and involvement of numerous local and statewide civic and business leaders. The key objective of this trade mission is to maintain and foster existing trade relations for San Antonio, learn about best practices for local initiatives, explore new projects and opportunities for local businesses, while encouraging company relocations to South Texas and our City.
