Let me begin by thanking Fomento del Trabajo Nacional and its president, Joaquín Gay de Montellá, for their invitation to take part in this event which has seen the presentation of the two books that compile the history, over more than two centuries, of this great institution. Thank you to Jordi Gual for his opening address. And my congratulations to the authors, Manuel Millán and Francesc Cabana, and to all the managers and associates of Fomento del Trabajo.
