  • GREETINGS FROM THE NEW SECRETARY-GENERAL - Francisco GONZALEZ DE LENA

    These words of greetings to the AICESIS members, at the moment of my incorporation in their General Secretariat, are, first of all, words of gratitude. Thank you to all the members of the Board of Luxembourg, where the election of the new Secretary-General took place and to the Presidency of AICESIS of the Dominican ESC, under whose mandate this election took place. Thank you to Patrick Venturini for the great work done in the General Secretariat of AICESIS over the last ten years and, especially, for his invaluable help in this transition period.

    In the last eleven years I have worked for AICESIS from the CES of Spain and I have to say that this has been one of the most satisfactory experiences of my professional life. An experience that helped me to better understand the complexity of the global world, to value the importance of social dialogue and to recognize the role that an institution such as AICESIS can play in order to give social dialogue the place it deserves in this global world. When speaking about globalization, it is frequent to highlight the importance of networked work, the cooperation between the different actors who act in this scenario. I believe that AICESIS is a good example of this cooperative work in a global world, and the Secretary-General is precisely here to support this form of work. This is a task in which I will put all my professional effort in the next years, working together with the Deputy Secretaries. And it is a task for whose realization I dare to ask for the indispensable help of the AICESIS members.

  • AICESIS MISSION

    The Association's objective is, with full respect towards the independence of each of its members, to encourage and promote dialogue and an exchange of views between its members and, at a wider level, to encourage dialogue between economic and social partners around the world. 

    The Association has set itself the task of encouraging the creation of ESCs in countries which do not yet possess them. Through the AICESIS, newly set up ESCs can find a wealth of experience, good practices and assistance that they can adapt to their own economic, political, social and cultural situation and significantly improve civil society involvement in their national political decision-making process, thus strengthening social dialogue in their country.
