The Spanish Government recognises the potential of design

In view of the difficult economic and social situation due to the health crisis caused by COVID-19, the organizations READ, FAD, BCD, RED AEDE, CADI and Valencia WDC2022 have communicated to the President of the Government the need to benefit from “the unquestionable capacity of the design sector to create, innovate and provide transversal, sustainable and social solutions”.



The associations have requested, by letter, the incorporation of an inter-ministerial committee from which to coordinate the actions for the integration of design in all the actions, plans and programmes for the economic and social recovery of the country, in collaboration and coordination with the Autonomous Communities, as well as the incorporation of our sector in the different working groups that are being set up in the different ministries.

On 19 July a reply was received from Iván Redondo, Chief of Staff of the Government, in which he thanks the associations for this offer, acknowledges the commitment of design in a crisis situation such as that currently faced and recognises its potential to contribute to the economic and social reconstruction of our country. He also opens the door to the receipt of specific proposals and the consideration of matters of relevance to the sector.
