Day 5

November 16, 2017

Welcome to Bilbao and beautiful Basque country! The group began their day with a tour of the ancient city hall of Bilbao. Built in Baroque style, the building has an impressive meeting chamber and Middle-Eastern design elements. For lunch, IBERDROLA hosted the group and discussed the role of IBERDROLA in the USA. Francisco Olarreaga, Yolanda Mayordomo, and Carlos Gasco were present to answer any questions on sustainability, market expansion, and international affairs the group had. Finally, after much anticipation, the Guggenheim Museum offered a private walking tour of their impressive collection. The day ended with a remarkable dinner hosted by the Fundación Consejo and fellow Spanish young leaders.
