About the embassy
The Australia-Spain relationship is close and multi-faceted. Both governments consult and collaborate on a broad range of bilateral and international issues. Our democratic values and commitment to global peace and security are the basis for this collaboration. The main element of the bilateral relationship is defence and defence materiel. Spanish companies have won significant defence construction contracts and cooperation between the Royal Australian Navy and the Armada has grown especially close.
