The Board of Trustees of the Three Cultures Foundation of the Mediterranean, meeting by telematic means, unanimously elected Lorena García de Izarra as the new Managing Director of the institution, taking over the post from Concha de Santa Ana Fernández.
The presidents of the Foundation, the Minister of the Presidency, Interior, Social Dialogue and Administrative Simplification, Antonio Sanz, and the advisor to the King of Morocco, André Azoulay, participated telematically. In their speeches, both thanked Concha de Santa Ana for her work at the head of Tres Culturas from February 2021, in a period marked by the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and the beginning of a new framework for Spanish-Moroccan relations.

Her last position, as Director General of Extenda, the Foreign Promotion Agency of the Andalusian Regional Government - an entity with a special impact on the promotion of economic cooperation with Morocco - allowed her to join the board of trustees of the Three Cultures Foundation, which has given her first-hand knowledge of the functioning of this institution.
