Confederacion Espanola De Organizaciones Empresariales

The Confederation of Employers and Industries of Spain, CEOE, founded in 1977, is the organisation which represents and defends the interests of the Spanish employers.

CEOE is the most representative business organisation in Spain being the economic and social partner to the Government, the Public Administrations, the trade unions, the political parties and third institutions at National, European and International levels.
It voluntarily groups together almost 2 million companies and self-employed entrepreneurs of all sizes and from all sectors of activity, through base associations networked within 240 sectoral and territorial organisations.

CEOE is ruled by independent and democratic governing bodies which determine the strands of action of the Confederation: the Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and the General Assembly.
