A Promising Partnership.

The relationship between business and politics has two dimensions that are critical to the democratic and economic health of a country. On one hand, private interest should never be allowed to ―capture the exercise of power in its own favour, and public bodies should remain strictly neutral when it comes to economic competition. On the other, public officials should be sensitive to what drives their economy, companies and workers, and foster an environment in which business and Ukraine should deepen their dialogue and joint efforts. The growing number of Ukrainians in Spain—70,000 in 2007, according to local registers—is a high priority, and both countries need to not only ensure full respect for the rights of these Ukrainian citizens, but also proper official support to make the Ukrainian communities in Spain a factor that contributes positively to bilateral links. Joint contributions to energy policy Spanish–Ukrainian dialogue on European affairs could focus, for example, on energy policy, a relatively new subject in the European context and one to which the two countries can contribute very different points-of-view and expertise: Ukraine, about dealing with Russia as a supplier and redrawing Europe’s Eastern supply lines; Spain, with its unique experience in dealing with Arab, African and Latin American gas producers. Both countries are large consumers and transit countries, although Ukraine’s experience in the latter role is much more extensive. Another potential area of joint reflection is the comparison between Ukraine’s perceptions and potential role in the Black Sea area and that of Spain in the Western Mediterranean. Ukraine and Spain are bridge countries linking those areas to the main European heartland. Their involvement in building more stable and cooperative sub-regional environments could serve as an example to each other. In addition, both countries should link their visions in a wider southern European region, one that went all the way from the Caspian Sea to the Atlantic.
