Pedro Luis Uriarte, the Minister for the Economy and the Treasury of the first Basque Government between 1980 and 1983, has today launched his “El Concierto Económico vasco: una visión personal” at the Deusto Business Alumni Meeting at the CRAI building at Deusto University Bilbao. He spent two years working on this extensive book and it covers all the situations and problems that the Economic Agreement has faced since it was introduced on 28 February 1878.
The book has been published in a digital format and will be available on www.elconciertoeconomico.com.
Uriarte stressed that “the Economic Agreement is the cornerstone of our self-government, even though it is not sufficiently known or recognised by the Basque citizenry itself.”
The book was also launched in Donostia-San Sebastián on the 17th and in Vitoria-Gasteiz and Pamplona-Iruña on the 18th.
