Spain Urged to Develop Relationship With USA

A report by The Hispanic Council says that in 2025 25% of all Americans will be of Latino origin and that there are already more Hispanics in the US than Spaniards in Spain. As such it is urging Spain to improve relations with America.

The report, titled "El auge de la comunidad hispana en EEUU" (The rise of the Hispanic community in the USA) were discussed in detail yesterday in Madrid.

"Spain should not let this historic opportunity to strengthen its Atlantic links pass by," the Director of the Hispanic Council, Daniel Ureņa, commented "it has a competitive advantage compared with other countries" due to common cultural interests and language.

The report also noted that the influence of the Hispanic community on US policy will be decisive in the future, given that the 52 million people comprising the most important US 'minority' could have cast 24 million votes in the last elections but over half of them abstained, thus making the social group a "sleeping giant."

The study went on to underline the importance of the great increase in the number of Hispanics who have registered to vote in states other than traditional Latino strongholds such as California, Texas, Florida and New York over the last decade.
