The general director of Casa África, Ricardo Martínez Vázquez, and its general secretary, Luis Padilla Macabeo, express their deepest sympathies in light of the death of the former president of the Canary Islands Government, Mr. Adán Martín Menis, and convey to his family and friends the condolences of all the staff from this public diplomacy institution that is responsible for bringing Africa closer to Spain and the Canary Islands. 

Adán Martín was one of the key people in the agreements that made possible Casa África´s creation and its location in the Canaries. His vision of the role that the Canarian archipelago could play in the relations with the neighbouring continent were always one of the pillars of his work. Adán Martín believed in Africa and working with Africa and with Africans in order to learn from them, with them, and to contribute towards their development. The former president formed part of the Casa África Advisory Council, in which he always contributed towards consolidating the Islands´ role as a bridge between continents. All of its members would also like to convey their most sincere condolences to his family and friends.

The African ambassadors in Spain were informed yesterday of the former president´s passing. They all showed great charisma, respect and admiration for Adán Martín, whom they remember as an untiring worker who favoured greater mutual awareness between the Canaries and African nations.
