The Minister of Public Governance and Self-Government, Olatz Garamendi, has stressed that “more self-government means more well-being” and, therefore, the Basque Executive will continue “to demand self-government pending transfer, regardless of the color of the government in Moncloa.” As reported by the Basque Government, the counselor gave a conference to a large group of representatives of the Basque community in Chile at the Euzko Etxea in Santiago, where she valued “the importance of the Basque community abroad, because it is a great ambassador of our great little country. Garamendi highlighted “the feeling of roots and pride” of the people gathered at the Euzko Etxea, with more than 110 years of history, as well as their “closeness to Euskadi despite the physical distance.” She has also reminded them that they are “a fundamental part of our identity, of the care of our culture, our traditions and our language.” “We must always thank our diaspora for this,” said Garamendi, who also valued the importance of this type of meeting that “strengthens us as a people in an increasingly globalized world.” Furthermore, the counselor reviewed various current political issues in the Basque Country and emphasized that “more self-government means more well-being, since better and closer management of resources and policies results in the development of the country.” For this reason, she has assured that the Executive will continue “claiming self-government pending transfer, regardless of the color of the government in Moncloa.” Previously, Garamendi held a meeting with the representatives of the different Euskal Etxeak in Chile, the two Euzko Etxeak (Santiago and Valparaíso) and the Basque Community in Chile.
