About Us

This is a blog about the Ibero-American Summit and all the things that are possible thanks to its creation. The idea of a healthy exchange between countries that have a similar cultural focus as well as the same language and share common problems is not innovational, but utterly necessary.

These days the world seems to be more connected than ever, but the gaps are growing bigger by the minute and there is very little work being done internationally to close them back again. Latin America is far away from the economic growth it has seen in the previous decade and so are Spain and Portugal. The wealthy few in both sides of the ocean are creating a parallel reality in which the gap is so big that they don´t even care for the needy and the homeless anymore.

Influential Consequences Of The Ibero American Summits

Most specialized media published the idea of the Ibero-American Summit losing its weight because of the embarrassing lack of presidents that attended to the Paraguay version in 2011 and the Panama one in 2013. Those years, the amount of presidents and heads of state attending was as little as half of them. According to El Pais, this could be the side-effect of the creation of the UNASUR and CELAC, which are the Union of South American Nations and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States respectively. These organisms were created to attend the common issues of their member countries much like the Ibero-American Summit, but in a smaller version. They do not include any European countries and are strictly aimed to helping each other solve regional problems.
