Garamendi appeals to unity after his re-election as president of CEOE


The recently re-elected president of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, thanked the businessmen this Wednesday for the majority support received to continue leading the employers’ association for the next four years and made it clear that “we all have to come out of here more united”. After knowing the results of the elections held, Garamendi wanted to thank the participation in the assembly, in which 643 businessmen have votedgiving her the victory with 534 votes, against the other candidate, the vice president of Foment del Treball, Virginia Guinda, who has received 87 supports.

In his first words, Garamendi thanked them for the support received to “be your representative”, but made it clear that “this goes from the bottom up, from the big ones, from medium-sized, small businesses and the self-employed”. “The most important thing is the word unity and from here we have to leave united”, said the president of the CEOE before an assembly gathered in the National Auditorium of Madrid. And it is that, “when the conductor of the orchestra and all the instruments work at the same time, it is when it is unbeatable”, said the leader of the businessmen, to add that “you have chosen me as conductor of the orchestra and the note must be give it well”.

In these first words he recalled the intensity of these last four years of work, both internal and external key, with numerous agreements signed with the Government and unions, thanks to which “they helped millions of workers and thousands of companies that would have closed.” Thus, he has valued the unity, moderation and independence that characterizes the employers, but also the consensus because “if we don’t reach agreements, what are we here for?, even if we also have to say no when it’s time”, he pointed out.

Garamendi has also referred to the latest tax measures announced by the Executive, such as those that will tax energy and financial companies, describing them as “a la carte taxes that generate insecurity legal and regulatory instability”. “And lately we are also seeing that there is no quality in the standard”, he added, in a clear allusion to the problems that the ‘law of only yes is yes’ is facing.
