King Juan Carlos of Spain on Monday expressed to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff the willingness of Spanish businessmen to invest in Brazil because it is a country that “has understood well” that the economies that “best respect the principle of legal security” are “those that offer their citizens greater well-being.”
Without alluding to the controversy with Argentina over YPF’s expropriation of Repsol, the monarch reaffirmed Spain’s business commitment to Brazil during the luncheon toast offered by Rousseff in his honor at Itamaraty Palace, the seat of the Brazilian Foreign Ministry, where the king concluded a working visit with important economic content.
In her address in response to the king’s remarks, Rousseff supported expanding and diversifying Hispano-Brazilian business cooperation and she expressed her confidence in the creativity and strength of the Spanish people in the face of their current economic difficulties and said she was certain that Spain’s efforts to overcome the European crisis will be very successful.

Dilma Rousseff with Emilio Botin at the Planalto
The president of Spain’s banking group Santander Emilio Botin described Brazil as “a very interesting market for Spain” following a meeting with Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff.
Botin who last year completed the unification of its group’s brands in Brazil under the corporative image of Santander was received by the Brazilian leader at the Planalto Palace where they talked for almost an hour.
“Brazil is a great country and a very interesting one for Spain” said Botin, a fact that can be easily shown through the “business and cultural links between both countries.”
