In this sense, Mª Begoña Llamazares -Sernauto’s market responsible and Autoparts from Spain’s platform coordinator- underlines the importance of Spanish brands being present at the Frankfurt fair since the European Union is the main commercial partner for the Spanish industry of components with 67.1% market share (according to the last 2022 data gathered by Sernauto).

This participation positions the initiative as a benchmark of excellence in the global automotive industry and promotes the image of Spain as a country with a high quality and reliable automotive industry.
