Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's been a significant rise in Spanish investment in the US following the shift in Latin American government in recent years.

Just to name a few, Gamesa Eolica, S.A. just built a factory to manufacture wind turbine parts in Pennsylvania, and in my hometown a Spanish transmission manufacturer from Navarra has plans to build an American plant.  

I think that there's a huge degree of ignorance about the level of Spanish investment abroad in the American economic development community, which has been almost exclusively focused on Asian investment.  I've acutally thought of writing to the newly elected mayor in my home town to point out that there's been little effort to attract Spanish investment and that the industrial mix in Spain is very similiar to the industries in the city.  With talk that SEAT may be planning a US expansion, I think that whoever snags that assembly plant would get thousands more jobs in feeder industries.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
