El Rey, Sánchez, González and Rajoy in the third edition of the La Toja forum

The forum La Toja, who was born three years ago, has already been consolidated as a meeting place for serene reflection and the in-depth debate of the challenges of our time. Far from the environmental noise of politics, Galician Island hosts debates involving both policy and economy managers, such as thinkers who help understand the complexity of a world governed by uncertainty and fear of the future. The forum La Toja, as explained by its president, Josep Piqué, in the presentation of the call, "was born as a dinner of friends" and achieved "a success" that the organizers did not expect. "Now we can talk about something consolidated for the future." Three people stood up this forum that started with the Atlantic surname. Former Minister Piqué, the Galician businessman and president of Hotusa, Amancio López Seijas, and the former Secretary of State of Communication Carmen Martínez Castro. The president of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, was involved from the first edition and there he continues to exercise as a host.

The third edition of the forum is celebrated this week. King Felipe VI opens on Wednesday 28 and the Government President La Closure on Friday, October 1. While there are very interesting presentations and debates for three days, there is a talk of two personalities that always monopolizes the headlines and the attention of the public. On Thursday, former presidents Felipe González and Mariano Rajoy will go up on stage to talk about Spain, Europe and the world. Whenever they are, both leaders take advantage of the occasion to make a song to the benefits of bipartisism that the crisis took. The forum will repeat this year a meeting of autonomous presidents of different parties that last year raised a lot of interest. The popular Núñez Feijóo and Alfonso Fernández Mañueco will sit down with Ximo Puig and Emiliano García-page to discuss the autonomous financing.

Josep Piqué assured in the presentation that the debates will focus this year in economic recovery, the crisis of representative democracies with the rise of populys, employment, equality and geostrategic changes that are taking place in the world with hegemony of powers such as China, Russia or Turkey. The affair of Afghanistan will be the subject of a discussion table.

Will pass through the day of the toja the first vice president, Nadia Calviño; The Prime Minister of Portugal, Antonio Costa; the Foreign Minister, José Manuel Albares; The Governor of the Bank of Spain, Pablo Hernández de Cos, the President of Airof, Cristina Herrero; The president of the Elcano Instituto, Juan José Ruiz; The Professor at the University of Oxford Tímothy Garton Ash and the Portuguese Foreign Minister, Augusto Santos Silva; and the president of the Economic and Social Council, Anton costs. The former OECD General Secretary, Angel Gurria, will receive the First Forum La Toja Prize.
