As, EFE, Hola Honored with Ponce de Leon Awards

MIAMI – Sports newspaper As, news agency EFE and Hola magazine were honored on Monday in Miami by the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce, at a luncheon attended by Spanish Secretary of State for Trade Jaime Garcia-Legaz.

“This is my sixth trip to Miami as secretary of state for trade, and every time I’m here I find another 15 to 20 Spanish companies that have just started up in South Florida,” Garcia-Legaz said in a speech during the awards ceremony.

For Spanish companies, he said, “Florida continues to be the main destination both for their businesses in the United States and for their connections with Latin America.”

The three Spanish media took home the Ponce de Leon Awards in the category reserved for Spain-based companies doing business in the United States.

Garcia-Legaz noted that, besides its geographic location, Florida’s great attraction is the business atmosphere fostered by the state authorities to win investment.

“The United States and Spain continue to be two natural trade allies. It is important, in that sense, that Congress pass legislation that would eliminate the double taxation of companies, which would in turn stimulate trade even more between our two countries,” Garcia-Legaz said.
