The main aim of the Rafael del Pino Foundation is to contribute to the improvement of knowledge among Spanish directors based on the principles of free individual initiative, free market and free enterprise. The Foundation understands that the dynamism of a country and its creation of wealth are based essentially on the competitiveness of its businesses and that depends fundamentally on the education of its citizens and the capabilities of its directors.
